Welcome Letter from Ms. Winter
Hello, my name is Ms. Tammi Winter and I teach Blended Pre-kindergarten at the Crete-Monee Early Learning Center, home of Leo the Lion Cub! I am starting my 14th year as a teacher here and will be working with Ms. Vanderbilt this year as my classroom assistant. I have a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood from Saint Xavier University and I’ve completed my Master’s Degree in Reading from Olivet Nazarene University. I also have a daughter named Taylor and a beautiful granddaughter.
A typical day in our classroom includes large group time, snack, free choice time, story and work in small groups. We also have weekly specials which include computer lab, music class, gym, cooking, library time and outside play.
Our school curriculum is called Creative Curriculum. The focus studies more on the children’s interests and assessments will be made through teacher observations.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the school year. Communication between home and school is an essential component to making your child’s school year a success. We look forward to meeting all of you and working with you and your children this school year!
