Debi Larkin-Chavez

Director of Operations 

Hello, my name is Debi. I am from

Huntington Beach, California and have

lived in Arizona since 2003. I received my

B.A. in Liberal Studies from Cal State Long

Beach, my Teaching Credential from Cal

State Fullerton & UCLA and my Master’s in

Education (Curriculum & Instruction) from

National University.  I have been teaching

collectively for about 35 years (grades Pre-

Kinder, K, 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6). I have always had

a passion for teaching. There is nothing

more gratifying than inspiring children to

be the best they can be…self confident with

a positive attitude! 

Phil and I have three amazing children

Madison (23), Mattie (22), Jackson (19) and

2 Puppers, Oliver and Bentley.  My children

have by far taught me more than I could

ever teach them.  I am very excited to be

working with a team of teachers who put

their heart and soul into teaching children

to truly make a difference!

Preschool 3's Teacher

My name is Tiffanie Cartan (aka Mrs. Tiff), and I am SUPER excited to be a part of the Wee Blessings family! I am originally from a small farm town of 200 in Iowa!  I moved to Arizona to attend Grand Canyon University, where I received my B.S. in Elementary Education and received my M.A. degree in Instructional Media from ASU.  I have 15 years of experience as a classroom teacher (1st, 2nd,3rd, and 5th grades) and as a K-6 Instructional Media Specialist (school librarian & technology instructor).  I have also coached boys and girls junior high track & field and 8th grade girls’ basketball.  I stepped away from teaching to be a stay-at-home mom to my two boys, who are both Wee Blessings alumni!  My husband, Scott, and I have been married for 12 years and enjoy any chance we get to take our boys hiking, biking and on frequent trips to the mountains.  We also enjoy tending to our 16 chickens!  I am so thrilled to follow my passion for teaching while being a part of your child’s first experience with school to help them build a strong foundation for learning!
