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 2/4 to 2/8/19

Posted on Feb 10, 2019

Hi Preschool Families,

     Happy February!  February brings so many fun celebrations like 100 Days of School, Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day and Dental Health.  Throughout this month we will be covering all of these with some fun activities.

     This week for our art projects we made a groundhog and found out that he didn't see his shadow and that we would have early spring, hooray!  We also painted hearts and decorated them with stickers and made Pete the Cat for letter P.

     For letter P this week we played some fun learning games like "Put the "p" in the pot and putting pepperoni that had words that begin with "p" on our pizza.  We learned the sound, sign and formation of our new letter and read a lot of Pete the Cat books, among others.

     For Math we talked about a penny.  We learned that Abraham Lincoln is on the penny and we learned that there is a heads and a tail side of the coin.  We leaned that a penny is worth one cent.

     For Religion we talked about being kind to each other.  We read the story of the Good Samaritan and talked about how God wants us all to be kind to each other.  Ten hearts went home with everyone and they know they need to do some acts of kindness at home and send the hearts back. We are making a big display in the hall of all of them.  The kids really love sharing what they have done at home.  Thank you parents for helping with this fun project.

     This week is Valentine's Day and we will be having our own little party at school. We have some fun games planned as well as passing out Valentine's to each other.  Everyone is welcome to bring in a wrapped treat to share with their classmates too.  We have 20 students in the morning and 19 in the afternoon.  

     Happy Valentines Day to all and have a great rest of the weekend!
