Dreaming Big : Dr. Martin Luther King


Even four and five year olds can grasp the concepts of which Dr. Martin Luther King advocated for.. We decorated our bulletin board in honor of his dream...

Parents are our VIPS!

The two things I love most about my career are
1. children and
2. families
without either there would be no need for teachers

We try to provide enriching,fun parent/ child activities  at least once a month in our classroom.The purpose of this is to get the entire family envolved and excited about learning. In this busy, fast pace world that we live in, it is necessary for educators to lure parents into their child's world  (if only for a brief moment) through field trips, cultural experienecs, or muffins for mom. Usually at the end of one of our VIP (Very Important Parent) events, we evaluate its success by the number of smiling faces we see...
