      I'm Ms. Susan Chacon and I have worked with children for  over 18 years.  I have worked for Paramount Unified School District for 11 years.  I earned my Associates Degree in Child Development and I am currently working on my Bachelor's Degree.  I also hold a Child Development Site Supervisor Permit.  I like spending time with my family and cooking.  I also enjoy reading and listening to music as well as dancing.


   Hello! My name is Stephanie Siordia and I’m the ECE Inclusion Special Education Co-Teacher during the morning session. In this role, I collaborate with the General Education Teacher in providing accommodations and support for students. I have worked in preschool special education for over 15 years.


I grew up in Paramount and attended PUSD schools from kindergarten to high school. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Ethnic Studies and Political Science from the University of San Diego. I earned my Master’s Degree and teaching credential in Early Childhood Special Education from Cal State Dominguez Hills.


I love traveling, watching movies, attending concerts, and trying new craft projects.

I look forward to working with all the students in the classroom and making the inclusion class a wonderful experience for everyone!
