Mrs. Widener - Biography

I believe that every grade can be fun to teach. Right now I am having fun teaching the 3 and 4 year-olds in our STA Preschool. I grew up in Kansas City, Kansas. My family moved to Wichita in 1996 from Springfield, Mo. where I was teaching middle school. I graduated from William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo. I received my masters degree from Missouri State University in Springfield. I earned my early childhood and early childhood special education endorsements from Wichita State University. I am an active member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children(NAEYC). I have been a presenter for the Kansas Association for the Education of Young Children(KAEYC) and for the Mid-America Association for the Education of Young Children (MidAm AEYC).

Marching into Spring

Marching Into Spring

It is that time of year when we are starting to see the green growth beginning to show in our school yard. We also see growth in our youngest STA students! We wish to thank our preschool families for the time and effort you have given us this year. We hope the parent/teacher conferences were helpful and informative. We look forward to many spring activities like April showers and spring planting. Enjoy!
