Hello! I am Jessica Gerecke. I graduated from Emporia State University with a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I grew up as an Army brat, traveling the around the United States, Europe, and Australia. I feel that having a multitude of experiences has a big impact on how I teach. I believe that everyone can learn, it just may take more time or happen in different ways.
This will be our fourth year using the OWL curriculum. OWL stands for Opening the World of Learning, and it is specifically designed for preschoolers. My students and I have really loved it last three years, and I hope that we continue to love it. It includes so many wonderful books and activities that I just know that it will be another great year.
