Ms. Head

I have a degree in Elementary Education.  I am a certified teacher of Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, and Library Media Specialist. The most enjoyable part about teaching for me is the intrinsic rewards I get from watching children achieve their goals.  I take pleasure in seeing children grow academically and socially over the course of a school year. I have taught preschool for a couple of local agencies in St. Louis. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the St. Louis Zoo, Grant’s Farm, traveling, reading, and getting massages.

    About Ms. Rush

    I have been working in education for 25 years.  I love preschool! We are here to help with anything you need.

    Goals for the Students

    We will be working on several goals this year.  These goals include, but are not limited to:

    • Number recognition
    • Beginning reading skills
      • Recognizing upper- and lower-case letters, parts of a book, sequencing of a story, picture walks, etc.
    • Counting from 1-20
    • Social emotional skills
      • Learning to get along with others in a group setting.

    Learning Focus

    Our learning focus is for the children to be literate in beginning reading and math skills.  We want the children to have a desire to be life-long learners.
