Welcome to the Three’s Blue Room

If April showers bring May flowers, then we should expect a spectacular May!
Welcome April! Let’s bring on Spring! We will introduce butterflies in the first two weeks as we get caterpillars for our classroom. Children will learn what caterpillars eat and watch them grow as we talk about their life cycles. Week of the You Child begins on April 16th and includes special activities to celebrate children: Music Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, Artsy Thursday, and Family Friday. Be on the look out for more information about the activities we will do for this special week! The last week of April we will be learning about plants and gardening. We have a new “Discovery Land” where the kids can see our garden outside the classroom windows. Come in and check it out! We can’t wait to get started!
Ms. Elisabeth is from Rockledge, Florida, about 45 minutes from Orlando. She was born and raised there. She has been in the early childhood field for 15 years. She has been employed by the school system for the past two years teaching Early Preschool and she has also worked with autistic students. She will be completing her bachelor’s degree in the spring of 2017. She lives her her husband of 13 years, her high school sweetheart. They have two children ages 10 and 7. They have just moved to Illinois. They enjoy traveling. She says it is nice to meet new people. She has a love for cooking/baking. She cooks anything because it is therapeutic for her and she loves cooking for people. She has always loved teaching children and is very excited to get the ball rolling.
My early work experience with children includes camp counselor, archery instructor, and park recreationalist. With a love of science, I completed a bachelor’s in Wildlife & Fisheries in 1994. After becoming a military wife and mother of two, I have moved eight times! When my children began elementary school, I volunteered in their Hands on Science program, worked as a substitute teacher, and began a Girl Scout troop. I have worked in daycare in Virginia, after school programs with school-aged children in Tennessee, and cared for two infants in my home in Arkansas. With the final move to O’Fallon, I enrolled at SWIC and earned my Associate’s in Early Childhood in December of 2016. I volunteered for a couple months in the Green Room before becoming a substitute for Discovery School. Now I am very excited to get to know my Blue Room friends and to work with Ms. Elisabeth. I welcome the chance to teach as well as learn from them!
