Class Room 4
Angela Ristau and Leticia Diaz
- Welcome to a great year at FEC! My name is Angela Ristau. I have been teaching for many years now most of which has been in early childhood here in Farmington. I have a master of arts in elementary education with endorsements in early childhood, science, social studies and history. I am part of a team that was recognized as a classroom of excellence and an appropriate model for other Oakland county teachers to observe the HighScope approach and curriculum. My partner and I have completed additional courses towards certification as High Scope trainers of teachers. In 2013, I won the Sue Williams “Seeds of Promise Award” for a commitment to Early Childhood. This is an honor I hold very dear because I was nominated by my good friend and team teaching partner as well as other early childhood professional colleagues.
I have been married since 1981 to my husband, Ray and together we have two grown sons. Rigel and Evan. I am delighted to be starting another year here working with Farmington Hills parents and families.
My name is Leticia Diaz-Gonzalez. I have been in the Farmington Public School district for more then 18 years. I have been working as a GSRP teacher-partner at Farmington Public School District since 2008. I have two adult children, my son Angel graduated from Lake Superior State University and my daughter Daniella who is a graduate of Northwood University. I live in West Bloomfield with my senior maltese dog named Surky. I enjoy mentoring and coaching staff in the High Scope philosophy and have completed the High Scope Trainer Certification. In my free time, I enjoy performing Mexican traditional dancing, kickboxing, hiking and yoga. I enjoy eating a variety of foods but I am allergic to all tree nuts.
