Teacher of the Year
Preschool Program is happy to announce that Ms. Stephanie Coppola has
been selected as the Teacher of the Year
for 2015. Ms. Coppola is a teacher in our new inclusive preschool class @FDR.
is dedicated to the children of our school and in her class. She is always looking to bring new and fun activities to the school and to
the classroom. She spends a lot of time
finding ways to engage all of the learners in
her class while addressing their individual needs. Ms. Coppola shares her ideas and resources
with her colleagues as she strives to create a culture
of collaboration in our school. She invites
other classes into her classroom for sharing
in fun activities and learning experiences.
Ms. Coppola has introduced our character
education program for this year. Ms. Coppola spent time in the summer to
ensure that the program chosen was suitable for our
preschoolers and their developmental levels of understanding. Ms.
Coppola facilitates the implementation of the
program for the other teachers at FDR. Lastly, Ms. Coppola has created a lending library that includes age
appropriate books to expose our students to
cultural differences as well as concrete examples of good character.
Ms. Coppola maintains that students
are able to express themselves more easily through music. In order to take advantage of this, Ms.
Coppola applied for and was awarded a grant to
purchase a music program for all the students at FDR. Integrating ABC
Music and Me will enable our students to work hands on with instruments while
addressing social, math, language, literacy and creative arts development.
Ms. Coppola is always willing to help with our school functions
and make them memorable for the students so that they have the best experiences
possible while attending FDR. “Miss Stephanie shows leadership and enthusiasm and deserves to be FDR’s Teacher of
the Year.” We are proud to have her represent the Edison
Preschool Program for 2015.
