B.A Elementary Education Early Childhood Certification
Hello B4 families! My name is Jamie MacFarland and I will be your child's preschool teacher this year. However, there are two other very important people in our room who work along side of your children, as well. The first is Mrs. Ruff, our 6 our aide, and the second is Mrs. Moon, our 4 hour aide. Throughout the day, we are all actively engaged in your child's learning experience. I, personally, am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your children this year and watch them grow! I first gained my B.A in Elementary Education (K-5) from Monmouth University and began substitute teaching to discover which age group I would enjoy working with the most. Throughout my experience, I realized that my passion was for teaching preschool instead of elementary school, so I went back to Monmouth University to complete my Early Childhood (P-3) certification. While going back to school, I was an aide at PECEC in an inclusion classroom for two years. Upon completion of my preschool certification, I was fortunate to expand my career here at PECEC as a teacher. This is now my fourth year teaching and I couldn't be happier with my decision to teach preschool! I truely believe that it is my passion for teaching and my experiences that have helped shape me into the teacher I am today. It is my goal for this year to meet each child in their model of the world in order for them to reach their fullest potential. I will do so by creating lessons around their interests and working with each child at their level of development. I look forward to working with all of you to have a successful 2017-2018 school year. If you ever need to contact me please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, write a note in your child's agenda book, or call the school at 609-893-8141 x1500.
