Ms. Sue Power, Preschool

Hello! My name is Sue Power. This is my sixteenth year of being a teacher and my third year at St. John Fisher. I am so excited to be working with your children this year in the part-time preschool program. A few facts about me are: Ever since I can remember, I always wanted to be a teacher. My love for reading extends from getting engrossed in a great book to choosing and reading books to my students. I believe in daily exercise and if my knees would cooperate, I would love to run a marathon, if I could. I also like to incorporate exercise in my classroom with movement, dancing and yoga. I am interested in anything related to science and I love to see my students faces light up when we mix up something as simple as baking soda and vinegar. I live in Evergreen Park and I have four fantastic adult children who thankfully are all doing well and in great careers of their own. I love going to the city and am a big Sox fan. A great evening for me is coming home from school, taking a walk and then sitting down to a great meal or going out to dinner with friends. I am proud to say that I am a product of Catholic school and that tradition remained the same for my own children as well. I really enjoy teaching my preschoolers about all of the wonderful things God has given us. I also enjoy teaching and learning with my students ways we can be more like Jesus in everything we do. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you on August 25, 2016! We are going to have a terrific year!

Part time Preschool for Week of 5/30 to 6/2/2017

Posted on Jun 04, 2017

Hi Preschool Families,

     Last week in preschool we wrapped up our Nursery Rhymes with "The Old Woman who Lived in a Shoe."  We rolled the dice cubes and kept adding children into our pretend shoe to see what that might be like.  Needless to say it was a little crowded.  For art we decorated a shoe and put some children in each of our windows and door.

      We also read two nursery rhymes about rain; "Rain Rain Go Away," and" It's Raining It's Pouring."  We made a raindrop using shades of blue tissue paper.  Lucky for us that there was no rain and we got to go outside to play almost every day.  I brought the quilts back to school and we had a our snack outside on the grass for a picnic.

     Everyone received a Nursery Rhyme Certificate that they colored themselves to show that they mastered them.  

     We practiced two more times for our upcoming show on June 6.  The children sound great and we can't wait for you to hear them.  

     We also took a trip to Kindergarten to see where that was and what it was like.  The kids had a lot of questions to ask the teachers.  Two of the most of important questions were "Where do we eat?"  and "Where is the bathroom?" Oh, and one more important question of equally importance, "Do we play in Kindergarten?"  

     Mrs. Healy sent home all of the extra clothes that were sent at the beginning of the school year.  I think everyone has grown two inches since then.  

     This will be the last blog of our school year since we will be wrapping up this week. Thank you so much for entrusting your children with us, we adore them.   We hope everyone has a happy and safe summer and we look forward to seeing everyone again in August.
