Mrs. Serita DeGree

Welcome to Room B11 (Yellow Star)!  I have been a preschool teacher for 11 years, and I am currently in my 8th year here at PECEC.  I have loved working with children of all ages for many years.  One position that I've particularly enjoyed 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  10-year-old son, my husband, 2 cuddly little dogs, and 1 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. Coyne(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!  Please take notice that our classroom is Peanut & Nut Safe!

Remember, each day your child will need to have the following items:

1. Backpack (no wheels)

2. Crib sized sheet and blanket (pillow and a stuffed animal 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

7. Bus tag (completed with child's information)
