Mrs.
Pat Green
Head Teacher of Pre-K 4

Welcome to First School! I'm Mrs. Green. I have worked as a childcare teacher for over 22 years. I have been in childcare for 33 years. I'm a head teacher in the Pre-K 4 classroom. I have my child development associate certificate in child development from Parkland College, with high honors. I am a certified Montessori teacher. I enjoy working here at First School. It seems like yesterday that I started here.

The philosophy in our room is to teach, love the children, show respect to everyone that we are surrounded around. We teach the Montessori foundation in Language, Math, Science, Geography, Practical Life Skills, Sensorial, Art, Music, Spanish, Large and Small Motor development. The children are presented activities, on a daily basis, in a large and small groups. We do activities on our own and work at our own pace. We are surrounded with Montessori material in our room. Children work and they feel when we do these activities as a group they say 'Mrs. Green when are we going to work instead of playing.' Some children want to work instead of play. That's their choice.

It's a great feeling to see their children learn and understand the Montessori way. At the age of 3 their brain becomes the absorbent mind. This is when children can learn a lot from presentations and hands on material. I'm blessed to have that knowledge and understanding of Montessori and to make a difference in their life.
