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 2/6 to 2/10/17

Posted on Feb 12, 2017

Dear Preschool Families,

     This week in Preschool we worked on Letter Nn.  We read many stories with Nn in the title and many Valentine stories.

     We played a game "In the News,"  The student picked up a picture, if it began with Nn sound, we all said "In the News" and then the student placed it in the newspaper, it it didn't, they got to pick another picture.

     Our Art projects were Ninja Turtles and Abraham Lincoln.  We learned that Abraham is on a penny and lived in a log cabin.

     For Math we worked on number 9 and played the number line game.  Everyone got a number and then had to find that number on the "human number line."  Then we counted.

     In Religion this week we talked about welcoming our family.  Our hearts of kindness is growing bigger every day.  The students really enjoy sharing all of the acts of kindness they are doing at home.  

     The Science experiment was color mixing using cotton balls, eye droppers and food coloring.  We put 4 different colors on the cotton balls.  It was fun.  


Our Valentines party is on Tuesday morning for the am students or Tuesday afternoon for the pm students.  Students are allowed to bring in Valentine's cards and a wrapped treat.  There are 26 in the morning and 19 in the afternoon.

Enjoy the weather and have a great rest of the weekend.
