The Teacher of the Month award is designed to recognize an employee who exemplifies our core values, which are compassion, humility, integrity, loyalty, and discipline. This month we are pleased to announce that our 2023 September National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Alex of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Lakeway TX.
In talking about how Ms. Alex exemplifies LSP’s core values, Program Director Ms. Shamra said, “Alex’s class has been so engaging and happy that I look forward to showing her room during a tour. During tours, I have had families comment on the organization and attentiveness of her classroom. She genuinely seems to enjoy her curriculum and has a great daily routine that the kids follow. I have watched her grow immensely over the past two months. She keeps getting better!”
What age group do you teach?
4’s and 5’s
What is the name of your classroom?
What do you love most about the age group you teach?
I love that they are old enough to have meaningful conversations. They are so funny and creative. I am never bored.
What is your favorite curriculum project you’ve ever done in your classroom?
I loved teaching them about calling 9-1-1 and what is considered an emergency. We used a fake phone and jumping blocks to play a fun game. The kids had so much fun!
What do you enjoy most about working for LSP?
I have been allowed to grow at my own pace.
What made you want to become an early childhood educator?
I love kids and I want to help them during a very important time in their lives.
Who and/or what inspires you?
Ms. Janie (our Assistant Director) has been such an inspiration to me! At work and personally, she really believes in me more than I do myself sometimes and that has helped me more than she knows.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I love painting and hanging out with my cats.
Tell us one special fact about yourself that no one would expect.
I speak three languages.
