The members of the Day School board are excited to announce we have hired Andrea Buckley as our new Day School Administrator. Andrea is a confirmed member of First St. John and the daughter of Judy Cervantes, who was our Day School administrator when Andrea was young. Andrea's experience with our Day School includes the honor of being a student in the first kindergarten class. Her later years of education led her to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in biology. After moving to Arizona, she pursued her certificate in education and taught first and second graders in a small, rural public school. At the same time, she and her husband were the owners of Blue Sky Ranches that offered horseback trail rides and horseback riding vacations.

Andrea’s teaching experience, combined with her management skills from the ranch, make her the perfect fit for our Day School! We are excited about the enthusiasm Andrea has for this job and for life in general. We eagerly look forward to working with her as we continue to grow and improve our Day School.
