Miss Maria's Page

Welcome to Pre-K 4! My name is Mrs. Maria Arist. The children call me "Miss Maria" and I have been teaching Pre-K for 13 years.

I love being an Early Childhood Educator because it is so rewarding. There is so much growth that happens during the Pre-K year. The children mature both educationally and physically, as well as, socially and emotionally. My goal is to make sure all of those needs are met daily.

Most of the school day is spent working in small groups, under the guidance of my two classroom aides, Mrs. Christina Moses and Mrs. Lynne Kanfoush. My aides are essential to our classroom structure. With their help, the children are able play, learn, and explore the learning centers that have been created within the classroom. The centers have been adapted to follow the guidelines of the NYS Core Curriculum. The center areas include Science, Math, Fine Motor, Art, Alphabet Recognition, Dramatic and Block play.

The students attend Gym, Music, and Art classes. They will have homework twice a week.

I believe in positive discipline. The children are rewarded at the end of each day for good behavior. In my classroom, we learn to respect our friends, our teachers, and each other. We are a part of a team, and we learn to help our friends.

The most important rule I have in our class room is
                   "We never say can't.  We just try, try, try."

I expect my students to come in to school every day and do their best, and I will do the same.
