Camas-Washougal Parent Co-op Preschool teacher Maria Lattanzi helps student Fiona Robertson create a sunflower with paint. The activity was designed to complement the reading of the book, “Sunflower House.” After 27 years, Lattanzi will retire on May 22 to pursue a career in social work. “Maria truly cares for each and every student’s well being,” said Kara Prynne, a member of the preschool’s executive board. “It shows in the way she interacts with the children on a daily basis.” ( Heather Acheson )
