Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Parents or Guardians:
Welcome to the new school year! We look forward to working with you and your child and anticipate an exciting year of growth. I am Ms. Shen. This is my first year teaching at Shawsheen. I previously taught Kindergarten and 10th grade in China and also had two years experience working with preschoolers at ECC Aims in Greeley Evans School District 6. I gained a Master's degree in Educational Economy and Administration and another Master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education through UNC. I have a Teacher license in Early Child hood Special Education from Colorado Department of Education.
I believe that children learn exceptionally well when they are provided with a developmentally appropriate nurturing environment filled with rich and varied learning experiences. Young children best learn through play based experiences which incorporate literacy, math, science, art, and connections to their environment and to the world around them. Each child is unique, and I will strive to meet your child at the developmental level they are at now, and to help strengthen those skills to best prepare them for their academic futures.
Our staff is open to your suggestions, ideas and concerns, or if you just want to say hello! We welcome parent input. We welcome any questions you may have. Please feel free to drop a note, call, or make an appointment to discuss your child's academic and social progress. I will update our classroom webpage regularly, and will send home a classroom newsletter every week usually on Thursdays. When the home and school work together, children receive the maximum benefit.
