If you’ve read Dream Class, then you know how I feel about storytelling. Nothing you can ever do as a teacher gets more response from children or generated more fun, more mystery, more excitement, and more behavior-influencing rapport than telling a story. In our classroom we read and act out stories all the time. This allows your child to explore infinite possibilities by using their imaginations while engendering an early start to a lifelong love of reading.
Shamika Wallace – Sweet Peas
Hello, I would like to take this opportunity to formally introduce myself. My name is Shamika Wallace. I’m a teacher here at Grace Trinity Academy in the Sweet Peas classroom. Children have been my passion for over seven years; I’ve earned my Associate’s in Early Childhood Education and am working towards my Bachelor’s in the field. I encourage my children to learn through curiosity, imagination and cooperation –and to be sweet from the start. On a personal note, I have six brothers and sisters, and I enjoy spending time with my pets and godchildren.
Ronald Durant-Parker – Sweet Peas
My name is Ronald Durant-Parker, and I am an infant/toddler assistant teacher at Grace Trinity Academy working in the Sweet Peas classroom. I am 24 years old and have been working in Early Childhood Education for the past 3 years. I received my CDA from Harcum College in Bryn Mawr and continue taking courses in the field at Eastern University. In my free time I look forward to spending time with my son, friends, and family. My favourite quote is the ethic behind how I teach –
“I can do all things, through Christ that strengthens me.” –Philippians 4:13*Don’t forget to ask your teacher to sign you up for the classroom Remind forum that keeps you connected to immediate reminders and notifications.
