Ms. Suzette, Owner
The establishment of Natural Bridges Preschool has been a life-long dream for owner and teacher, Miss Suzette.
The dream began in college while working at a private preschool and elementary school in Whittier, California. Her goal was to graduate from college and teach elementary school in the Bay Area until she married and had children of her own. Knowing that she wanted to be a stay-at-home-mom for her own children, Miss Suzette began working to develop her ideal early childhood education program, curriculum, and materials.
On January 6, 2003, Natural Bridges opened with just six students, two of whom were Miss Suzette's own children, operating just two mornings a week. Now, Natural Bridges Preschool is in its 10th year of operation and now serves over 48 students in three different class groupings!
Ms. Suzette holds a California Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential, Preschool Director Certificate, and has earned numerous awards in the field of Early Childhood Education from local parenting groups and educational groups. Suzette was awarded 'Teacher of the Year' in 2011 from Sunol Glen Unified School District for Excellence in Teaching.

Hello, I’m Ms. Megan. I began teaching at Natural Bridges Preschool over eight years ago and decided to pursue my passion for teaching and get my degree in Early Childhood Development. I have worked with children the majority of my life and helping them learn and grow is something that gives me great joy! Currently I am working towards obtaining my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with hopes of teaching in a Second or Third grade classroom. I have experience working with children ages 2-17, including teaching a Kindergarten class and managing a library.In my spare time I coach cheerleading at Irvington High School in Fremont. I also like to travel as much as possible. I enjoy art, movies, music, nature, and photography.
