Liliana Saffron - Family Liaison

Hi! I’m Ms. Lily. I was born and raised in Guadalajara, México. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the University of Guadalajara. I moved to Colorado eight years ago, and this is my seventh year working for APS. In the past years, I worked as Paraeducator, Community Corp Liaison, and Educational Assistant Media Technician. This is my third year working as Family Liaison. I’m currently attending college to become an Elementary teacher. In my free time, I enjoy crocheting, painting, hiking, and spending time with my husband, my siblings, and their children.
