Welcome to Little Acres!  My name is Julie Avery also known as Miss Julie.  I have been at WACC for over twenty years and absolutely love teaching!  I have a bachelor’s degree from Chico State, and received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from St. Mary’s.  I continue my passion for learning with regards to how to better teach kids through professional development workshops.  When I am not teaching, I love going to the beach with my husband and 2 kids.  We are going to have a wonderful year together!

My name is Elliot Tiras and I am excited to be in the Little Acres program with your child!  I have been working in education for many years and have received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Sonoma State University in 2009.  I have also been a youth soccer coach, private tutor, and personal trainer for children of all ages.  It is my hope that I can bring my unique set of talents to help foster growth, learning, and joyful interactions with your children in our Little Acres program.
