I am elated about working with the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Department this year. I have been in the field of education for the last 24 years and those experiences, my credentials, and the ECE staff will be the resources I use to make the ECE department even better.
The staff and I welcome you and we are excited about the changes taking place in the ECE this school year. We are in the process of ensuring that our students are continuously introduced to 21st Century educational lessons and practices. Examples such as a Virtual and Interactive classroom, a Math and Science classes that focus on S.T.E.M. and S.T.E.A.M. practices, Yoga/Mindfulness activities, Music and Movement to name a few. We will continue using the Common Core Standards as our guide to ensure our lesson plans are vertically aligned to improve academics across the ECE department.
We look forward to working with the parents of our students to ensure our department is one that thrives and strives for excellence. The staff and I will work diligently to ensure your daughter is well-rounded through academics, global awareness, technology, and hands-on activities.
We look forward to serving your daughter and thank you for entrusting your daughter’s academic journey with AAG.
