Welcome to St. Vincent de Paul Preschool!

Our theme for the school year is:  

"Do Small Things With Great Love" 

This is my 21st year at St. Vincent de Paul School, and my eleventh year as a preschool teacher.  I previously worked as a teacher associate in kindergarten and first grade.  Prior to that I taught preschool for over 10 years.  I received my Bachelor of Science from UNL and my Master of Arts in Teaching from the College of Saint Mary. 

Classroom Information and Links
Our goals in preschool include providing a Catholic environment where:
*Each child will be able to experience God's love and grow in a relationship with God. 
*Each child's social and emotional development is fostered.
*Language, literacy and listening skills are developed and encouraged
*Opportunities are give for the development of fine and large motor skills.
*Creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking skills are fostered.
*Each child's individuality with regard to life experiences and traditions is valued.

In addition, we are blessed to have two teacher associates working with us in preschool/pre-kindergarten. Mrs. Suzanne Kerr is the teacher associate in my 2-day and 3-day morning classes while Mrs. Christine Piernicky is the teacher associate for the 5-day afternoon class.
