Meet the Principal - Ms. Persaud

  • Nayadin PersaudHello Gladden Farms Community,

    I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with high performing students, an extremely dedicated crew, and a supportive school community. I am committed to excellence in education and believe that strong relationships and a collaborative school culture are the pillars for achievement and growth.

    I come to you with 18 years of experience as an educator. I have worked at various educational levels from pre-kindergarten teacher to university lecturer. My focus has been geared towards the empowerment of elementary school children and working collaboratively with many different groups of adults. I have been trained in and taught using quality instructional programs and frameworks including Expeditionary Learning (EL), STEM and International Baccalaureate (IB). I am excited to be working at a school that values safety, respect, responsibility, and kindness. These values are the heart of our school and are embodied by all stakeholders.

    I relocated to the Tucson area during the summer and I am excited to explore the city and learn more about southern Arizona. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time hiking, playing board games, reading, and traveling.  

    I look forward to partnering with you and am eager to learn more about the Gladden Farms community.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

    With Pride, 

    Nayadin Persaud- email
