Hi! My name is Alicia Gustafson (the children call me Ms. Gus) and I am proud to be the Pre-K teacher at Cherokee Heights! One of my favorite things about being part of the Cherokee Heights team is the awesome community in which I get to work; from our amazing students to our supportive families, to our caring staff - our school is like a family! I love working with and learning from children in Pre-K. Their curiosity, joy, and excitement about the world inspire and challenge me each day. It is my honor to partner with all our families to support our children as they develop into strong, capable, and compassionate humans! I am deeply passionate about preparing our children with the skills that will help them thrive in life.
I live in St. Paul with my husband, Chris, and our son, Asher. As a family, we love to go for walks and ride bikes, hike and climb mountains, read books, and eat as much ice cream as humanly possible! I also enjoy practicing yoga and I try to make it to my mat every day.
