Shelly O'Brien

PreK Educational Specialist

I am excited about joining Mrs. Eveland in the Pre-K classroom for a transformational school year, and to have my daughter Mele join the Kindergarten class. From a school gardening teacher to an elementary librarian and Enrichment Teacher, I have enjoyed working with all ages over the past 20 years, including Early Childhood to lower elementary.


The Pre-Kindergarten class uses an integrated curriculum encompassing all subject areas.  Process, rather than product, is the primary focus.  A wide range of content areas are presented through the use of daily routines and procedures, themes, and topics (such as holidays or conservation).

Independent learning centers are an integral part of the classroom environment.  Centers are made available through which children may explore a variety of materials and develop, practice, and master different skills on their own.  At various times, these areas include:  a writing center, a science center, a math center, a block area, a library center, a dress-up/dramatic play area, an art center, and a sand/water table.  Teacher-directed centers, including small and large group lessons, are also important.
