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 4/16 to 4/20/2018

Posted on Apr 22, 2018

Dear Preschool Families,


     We have been talking a lot about saving the earth.  We learned that there are many things we can do, even though we are little, like picking up our garbage and recycling.  This week we did an experiment with Cheerios.  We talked about how car tires take thousands of years to break down and by breaking them up and recycling, they can be made into other things.  We pretended the Cheerios were tires and we crushed them up and ate some too!

     For Art we made an earth, a volcano and put violets on Letter V.

     For Religion this week we talked about Baptism.  We learned that when we were baptized we became a member of God's church family.   

     This week in Math, we read a story about ducks and numbers.  We all did a paper cutting exercise.

     Our letter this week was letter Vv.  We played a game where we separated V's and U's.  We also practiced printing V's and separating uppercase V and lower case v on the correct vine.

     The afternoon preschoolers were able to see Mary Poppins in the gym.  They were a great audience!

     We are finally lucky to get to go back outside again as the weather is cooperating.  Hooray!

     Have a great rest of the weekend!
