Full STEAM Ahead!

I am so excited to be the STEAM teacher this year at HPPDS, and I don’t think I could even dream of a more perfect job, because I am having a blast teaching your children!

Our STEAM classroom is a hands-on classroom, meaning that I like to provide the students with different materials to peek their curiosity, whether it be building materials, rocks, insects, science experiments, bones, bird nests, ocean life, microscopes, sewing table, and yes, even my grandfather’s dentures! I love for them to ask questions, use critical thinking, and problem solve!

Why We Love Play

Sometimes preschools that are considered "play-based" are assumed to be non-academic, as though it can only be one or the other. On the contrary, neuroscience research consistently points to play as the best way for a child to develop academic skills. Play in the early childhood years is essential for building healthy brain architecture; it creates the foundation upon which all later learning happens.
