      I became a teacher because I wanted to share my love of learning with children. I feel that this is a skill every child needs instilled at a young age so that they will remain inquisitive throughout their lives. I feel that this will be a fun and exciting year for your child.

      My name is Jeff Gugliotto. I was born in Ft. Collins, CO and lived in CO until my family moved to Sammamish, WA when I was a freshman in high school. I graduated from Washington State University with a Bachelor’s in Sociology (Go Cougs!) and then obtained my Master of Arts in Education from Western Governors University while working in the Issaquah School District.

      I am excited to move to Richland with my girlfriend who is also a teacher; she’s a Speech Language Pathologist in the Kennewick school district. We have a black cat named Louis and a long-haired dachshund named Douglas.”

      I really enjoy working with kids and getting to know them. I especially enjoy working with students who have significant needs and challenges. It is rewarding to see them learn and grow as scholars,and as individuals. My goal in working with children is to help them to believe that they can improve their skills, and that having the determination to work through challenges, and hardships will lead to success.
