Teacher Message: Welcome to the wonderful world of preschool. This is a place where learning is fun and exciting. This is a very critical age group to teach because we are building a foundation for a lifetime of learning. When children are given a strong foundation in preschool their chances of doing well throughout their school years soar above average.
My name is Dianna Overall. I have been teaching at Hodgen College Bound Elementary since 2004. I have been teaching preschool about 20 years and it has been a very rewarding experience. I have a bachelors degree in earlychildhood education from the University of Missouri.I also have a degree in elementary education which certifies me to teach Kindergarten through eight grade. I have a masters degree in curriculum and design which has given me a clearer understanding of how curriculum programs are developed.I received the Teacher of the Year Award in 2007. I also received the Pettus Foundation Award of Excellence in 2008. I enjoy working with children and believe everychild is special. I believe in meeting a child where he or she is and working with them to achieve their full potential of learning. I realize that children develop and move at different paces, therefore differential instruction is important. I strive to create a caring, safe, and engaging learning environment which encourages students to believe in themselves and do their personal best.
Below are some links to websites that you can use to help your child with online learning during this tough time.
Note: The Academic team has created enrichment packets to encourage continuous learning among students of all grade levels. These packets are available at meal distribution sites, and they are posted online at www.slps.org/keeponlearning
