2nd Grade Team
Hello Everyone! My name is Christopher Danti and it is my great privilege to be a part of the Bailey Team! This will be my second year with SRJ Bailey ES, but my fourth as a teacher for CCSD. I am from California and have a degree in Literature and Creative Writing from SF State. After college, I became a caretaker for members of my family and while doing so, I earned my credential in teaching and taught in Sacramento for three years.
It is and has always been my mission to help my students learn, grow, and feel heard. I help create with my students a fun, safe, and happy classroom, where self expression is embraced and appreciated. I work hard to make the lessons engaging, hands-on, and fun for the kiddos! I encourage my students to learn about themselves and grow as people. I challenge and push them to help them achieve the unexpected and wonderful, both in academic and personal ways. I am very happy to be returning to the Amazing Second Grade Team at Bailey and cannot wait to have an amazing year!
Hello families! My name is Tracy Dreeke. I am so excited to be starting my 12th year at Bailey! I am an Army brat who moved around a lot as a child. I consider Texas to be my home state because I lived there for 23 years of my life. I have a bachelor’s degree in liberal studies and a Masters in Elementary Education from Sierra Nevada College. It is my goal to provide a caring, nurturing, and academically challenging environment for students. I believe that the environment for learning is equally important as the skills taught. I hope to prepare students for success, both inside and outside of the classroom.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, reading, playing with my dogs, hanging out with friends and family, and watching the Golden Knights play. (Go Knights Go!) I look forward to working with my second-grade team and building a love of learning with all my students!
Hello. My name is Michell Guldner. I have taught many different grades in elementary and I have had various types of positions in education. I love teaching 2nd grade! I have been teaching in the Clark County School district for 18 years. Previous to coming to Nevada I have taught in Michigan,Texas and Oklahoma.
I graduated from Cameron University with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and obtained my Masters in Teaching through National University. In 2009, I became a National Board Certified teacher in Reading.
A little personal information: I love to read! I'm a small dog person. When I'm not being a homebody, I like to travel. Also, my family and I love to play games together.
I look forward to getting to know my students, I know we will have a very successful year of fun and learning together, in 2nd grade.
Hello, everyone! My name is Andrea Demarae-Sepulveda and I will be starting my second year as a Bailey Bronco! I was born in New Jersey - the last of nine children - but moved to North Las Vegas in 1964. From there, we relocated to California where I grew up in the OC. I graduated from California State Northridge with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Development and a multiple-subject teaching credential with a CLAD emphasis. From there, I transferred to Chapman University where I received my Master’s Degree in Education along with an Administrative Credential. This will be my 8th year with CCSD. I have taught grades K, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th grade English Composition and 8th grade GATE Drama. My favorite is elementary education, so I am excited to be teaching at Bailey! I’ve been teaching 2nd grade for 12 of my 19 amazing years. Each year every one of my classes become my family, they are just that special to me! There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to see them reach their full potential. Go, Broncos!!
I have a 31 yr. old son and a 9 yr. old grandson, who both live in California, but visit quite often. My hobbies are reading fiction, water-color painting and writing fiction novels. I also love gardening and all animals, especially German Shepherds and Golden Retrievers. I can’t wait to meet you, future students and families, and look forward to watching all of you exceed your goals and become the second-grade superstars you are meant to be!
Hi! My name is Kristin Stanzione. I am very excited to be teaching 2nd grade! I have taught second grade here at Sister Bailey Elementary since it opened in 2007 and love it here!
I graduated from Washington State University with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and obtained my masters through Lesley University. I am a National Board Certified teacher in Early Childhood Education.
I love to travel and see the world whenever I get the opportunity. I’ve been to all 50 states and numerous countries in 4 out of the 7 continents! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, collecting Disney items (especially Mickey Mouse), reading, taking pictures, and scrapbooking.
I am looking forward to a magical year of adventures together in 2nd grade.
