The Sunshine Room at St. John’s Preschool is home to children are between the ages of 2-1/2 and 3 years old. Children are encouraged to explore their environment through experiential learning; they will learn to recognize and articulate their feelings as they play with friends and they will build on their prior knowledge of language and math skills as they write their name, count and sort objects and retell stories. Children attend weekly chapel and begin to learn scripture verses during daily Bible Time. Classroom lesson plans are based on our comprehensive and developmentally appropriate curriculum model which is designed to prepare them to successfully move into the next phase of their preschool journey.
I have over 16 years of experience working with preschool children. Spending time with children lets me see the love of God and the beauty of His creation at its best. Seeing my students' happiness and joy places me in the position where I find myself content, peaceful and filled with the love of God. I truly value teaching my students kindness and care for each other; I believe that this is something that stays with them forever.I love teaching at St. John's Preschool because we can freely teach about God and His Word.

I love working with children because it is fun! Everyday I get to see their sweet little bright-eyed faces and it simply makes my day. I love to focus on their strengths and help to motivate them to achieve more than they thought they could. They are so creative; I actually learn from them too! Helping children is the most rewarding job and I feel it is my calling from God. My goal here at St. John's is for all the children here to feel welcomed and loved in my class and at school. This is my first year working in a preschool setting, although I have worked in child care for several years.
