This year I will be working with 20 amazing 4 year old preschool students attending our full day preschool program. These students are either attending preschool for the very first time or transitioning from half-day to full day. The students come from various cultural, socio-economic, and ethnic backgrounds which lends itself to a diverse classroom environment. The students also have different learning preferences whether it is visual, kinesthetic or auditory. Regardless of their backgrounds and their learning preference, all of the students are eager to learn and explore their world around them. My goal is to give them as many tools as possible to become active and engaged learners.
