Mrs. Maureen Narrow
Welcome to my Pre-Kindergarten class at Dewey ISS! My name is Maureen Narrow and I am excited to start my fourth year here at Dewey ISS. I have a Masters in Early Childhood Education from Webster University, and I have been working in the Early Childhood setting since 2005, ages ranging from 6 weeks to 1st grade. I am married and have two kids!
It is my firm belief that the educational experience is imperative for all children to have not only academically, but physically and socially as well. Through my experience of working with young children, I have observed that the best way to reach and teach young children is through a balanced approach because not all children learn the same way. Children benefit from routine and structure, but I feel that it is important to include hands-on experiences and a variety of different teaching methods to ensure success and growth. Children need to explore and discover the world around them. I like to include both whole group instruction and small group centers to make sure that all of my students are engaged in making meaning of the content that they are learning.
I like to create a warm and organized environment that promotes critical thinking, self-awareness, and problem solving. I want my students to discover the classroom environment and be able to think and question without judgment. I believe that each student should be an active participant in his/her education. My students are able to express themselves in various spaces that allow different experiences.
I am excited to get to know your child and your family this year and look forward to an awesome 2019-2020 school year!
