is the first day of school. The fourth floor is abuzz. As children enter the
big room they slide down the big slide, make a phone call on our very antique
phone booths and then drive to far-away lands at the wheel of our three person
driving bench. Then they’re off to their classrooms. The beginning of school
year is known as the “phase-in” period. Classes are divided in half with each
half group attending for an abbreviated day. Parents join us for phase-in to
help ease their child’s transition to preschool. Over the next few weeks our
pre-schoolers will gradually get to know their classmates and teachers and get
used to their daily routines.
teaching staff returned to school after Labor Day renewed and ready to start a
wonderful new year. We greeted three new staff members. Claudia Taylor will be
teaching two classes of two year olds; our three day a week Chickadees and two
day a week Starlings. Claudia recently moved back to Brooklyn from San
Francisco where she was a literacy specialist/reading coach at a middle school.
Claudia has over ten years of teaching experience ranging from preschool
through middle school.
Gomori will also be joining our professional staff as a floater. Sarah has
worked here as part of our sum-mer program since 2010, first as a CIT and most
recently as an assistant teacher. Sarah spent the last year in Spain working at
are also happy to have Amy Shubert-Corrao join us as a part time floater. Amy
has worked here as a regu-lar substitute teacher the last two years. She is a
gifted artist and brings her artistic talents into all of the class-rooms.
are all looking forward to a new year full of growth, friendship and discovery.
