Mrs. Serita DeGree
Welcome to Room D6 (Blue Diamond)! I have been a preschool teacher for 12 years, and I am currently in my 9th year here at PECEC. I have loved working with children of all ages for many years. One position that I've particularly enjoyed over the years has been a children's choir director and teacher, so I'm always singing in the classroom! I am also a mom myself with a sweet and active 11-year-old son, my husband, 2 cuddly little dogs, and 1 curious cat. Yes, I also love animals! I am looking forward to a wonderful school year, and I am so happy to be a part of our fabulous 5 star school in an excellent school district. We also have two wonderful teacher's aides in the classroom who also work with the children each day, named Mrs. Fox (6 hour aide) and Mrs. Yock (4 hour aide). Together, we will do our very best to make sure each child has a positive, memorable preschool experience. I am so excited to work with your children and families!
Remember, each day your child will need to have the following items for in-person learning:
1. Backpack (no wheels)
2. Crib sized sheet and blanket (pillow is optional)
3. Lunch box, if bringing a lunch from home
4. A healthy snack for snacktime
5. Pull-ups and wipes (if your child is not fully potty-trained)
6. Extra clothing including a top, bottom, underwear, socks and shoes (Please store clothing in a large plastic Ziplock storage bag)
7. Bus tag (completed with child's information)
8. Cloth face mask
9. Water bottle
*Please make sure all items are labeled with your child's name.
