Welcome to St. Cecilia's Pre-k 3 class! My name is Haley Bruce, and I am the Pre-K 4 (and Prek 3) teacher. I hope you are enjoying looking around our school's website. Here is a little information about our classroom.
Our Goals: For each of our students grow religiously, socially, and academically throughout the year.
Our students grow in their love of God through our weekly Bible stories and activities, daily prayers, and learning Christian songs.
Our Academic goals for our students include:
Our children grow socially through making friends, sharing, taking turns, using words with others, peaceful conflict resolution skills, increased independence, and creative play.
In addition, our children's gross motor skills grow in our weekly trips to the gym. They learn basic computer skills through our weekly computer time.
We play hard and "work" hard all year! The students have a great time, and always learn throughout the year.
This is Mrs. Bruce's 13th year teaching. It is her 9th year at St. Cecilia's, and 10th year teaching Pre-K. She loves working with the "little ones," and watching them grow in their love of reading. Mrs. Bruce runs and organizes Catholic School Week in January, helps with Red Ribbon Week. This year she is planning on helping with Saturday tutoring. She has taught religion to elementary grades, and run drama club. Mrs. Bruce graduated from the University of Dallas in 2003 with her degree in education, and has completed some graduate work in Theology. Mrs. Bruce's husband is also a teacher, and they both enjoy being parents to their preschooler.
