Welcome to Preschool!
Welcome to Preschool! My name is Elizabeth Connelly and I am the inclusive preschool teacher in room 139 at Locke School! I am happily married for 4 years and have two young children. We spend a lot of our free time outdoors. We love going for walks and playing outside. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Cooking, baking and reading are some of the things I like to do when my kids aren't keeping me busy.
This will be my 11th year teaching, and 5th year as a Locke Lion! The majority of my teaching career has been spent in Early Childhood classrooms. I believe in teaching the whole child through play. I believe that everyday my students bring something new and exciting to teach me. Teaching preschool is a passion of mine and I love teaching the youngest learners. Preschool is where children can play and not even know they are learning. Preschool is a magical place!
I co-teach with Mrs. N. Papeck and Ms. J. Martinez. We work together closely to ensure that all our students are learning through play and enjoy coming to school each day. We are creating engaging and fun lesson that will connect the outside world to our youngest learners.
I cannot wait to meet everyone, I am looking forward to an amazing school year!
