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 2/12 to 2/162018

Posted on Feb 17, 2018

Dear Preschool Families,

     This week in Preschool we were very busy with learning about the Presidents and our Valentines Day Festivities.

     We planned on working on Letter P but our schedule didn't allow us to really get into it so we will continue Pp this week.  

     For Art we made a Presidents Day Book and decorated our Valentine's candy bags.

     For our party we had a great treat and juice provided by our room moms. We played some great games and passed out our Valentine's cards to our friends.

     We also talked about Lent and received ashes.  We talked about how a caterpillar changes into a butterfly.  We compared it to ourselves, changing and growing too, for Jesus.  We talked about being kind and saying "we're sorry" when we do something that makes someone sad.  

     We played a letter review game and a math game too.  

     There is No School on Monday due to Presidents Day.  I hope everyone has a great three day weekend.
