My name is Angela Hester I graduated from Canisius College with my Masters in Elementary Education in 2004 and have worked for the Buffalo Public School District since 2006. I have taught in grades 3rd, 4th and  6th grade as a general education teacher.  I am currently teaching Pre k at Stanley Makowski Early Childhood Center. This is my first year and I love what I do! My passion is education, so being able to provide the opportunities for learning & support for my students and families.  Our amazing culture and community makes Stanley Makowski Early Childhood Center a place where you not only come to work to make a difference for kids everyday, but do-so alongside friends and family. 


My name is Tracey Saunders I've worked at Buffalo Public Schools for more than 38 years and have worked with different teachers across the district. I work really closely with classroom teachers and other TAs and it's a real team effort. I think working in  pre-k is the hardest job ever. It's so emotionally and physically inspiring. But I found I had a natural aptitude for working with children.
