Mrs. Nikki Hufana
Site Director's Bio

I completed course work from De Anza College with a certification in Child development and Site supervisor. I have over 18 years working in education at Bethel Lutheran School. I started at Bethel as a volunteer, which led into a job offer. I was fortunate enough to have both of my children attend the preschool and elementary school programs. Over the years, I have taught preschool 3’s, 4’s, and Jr. Kindergarten. During the summer I was lead teacher for preschool Science sessions as well as lead teacher for 1st/ 2nd grade combo class. Last year would have been my 11th year teaching Jr.

Kindergarten. I was given the opportunity to lead the school as the director of the preschool and after school care programs. I feel it has really come full circle. I am truly working at my dream job. My education philosophy is that children need to feel that others care for them, and that God loves them. Securities in these areas lay a solid foundation for academic growth and learning. I enjoy working at BLS because I have support from the staff and devoted parents by my side. Working with children and supporting their families along their education journey feels so natural, I feel it is what I’m destined to do. My favorite bible verse is “Faith, it does not make things easy it makes them possible. Luke 1:37. I’m excited and anxious to work with my team and partner with Tulip Kids this year, as we create more opportunities of learning and making memories with more families in our community. In my spare time I enjoy baking cakes, party planning, bike riding, shopping and backyard bbq’s with my family.

I look forward to working as a team with you to help your child grow and thrive as a student this year and many years to come here at Tulip Kids.

Blessings,

Mrs. Nikki Hufana

Priya Pardeshi

My name is Priya Pardeshi. I joined Bethel Lutheran School in 2017 after ten years as a stay-at-home parent. Though my educational background is a Masters in Computer Management, nine years of volunteer work has consistently led me to caring for young children. I studied at De Anza Community College where I received credits in Early Childhood Studies and plan on returning to take more classes. Working with the Bethel Lutheran School as Lead teacher for 2’s brought me great joy, and I value my role supporting moms and dads on their parenting journey. I always believe that children learn best when the learning environment is designed to meet the developmental needs of each child and one that encourages exploration, creativity and independence.

I am excited to be part of Tulip Kids and look forward to continue to have a positive impact on the children’s growth and it my goal to make sure that each child receives the best care and love that they all deserve.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends I also enjoy reading, music and traveling.
