YOUNG SChool PRE-K at sixtwelve: A STRREAMM-LINED APPROACH
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am - 2pm (Following the OKC Public Schools Calendar)
Our goal is to help students find readiness for Kindergarten through Science, Technology, Reading Readiness, Engineering, Art, Music and Math (STRREAMM). We believe that a holistic approach to learning is best and that it requires discovery through play and experimentation. During the course of this year, September through May, we will be working in the garden, making our own snacks, creating art and music, conducting experiments, practicing reading readiness and more! We will provide enrichment opportunities through field trips that will be fun and will compliment all that we are learning together.
Meet the teachers
Amy Young, co-founder and Executive Director of SixTwelve, taught elementary school music (PreK through 5th grade) for 8 years at Lakeview Elementary School in Norman, Oklahoma. She has earned a bachelors in Music Education, a bachelors in Art History and a masters in Art History. She worked as an education curator at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art for 3.5 years, leading the docent program, creating curriculum for exhibits, and overseeing the internship and travel programs. Her passion is people. She believes that learning and growth are keys to happiness and has made it her mission to share those things with others. This PreK program and school has been her dream since she was a child and every step she has taken throughout her education and career has led to its realization. She is ecstatic to welcome your family to this experience.
Julia Goldstein Roff has taught Preschool and PreKindergarten for 6 years. She began her teaching career in DC Public Schools, where she was trained in Tools of the Mind and began working with the Air and Space Museum to help develop their Science in PreK teacher training program. Working with the Air and Space Museum helped her to discover her passion for teaching young children academic skills through the lens of science and art, while encouraging critical cognitive development. Her goal as a teacher is to guide children to become logical and expressive individuals, and discover their own passion for learning. She treats every year as an opportunity to learn something new - be it a favorite animal or line of superheroes, she is always ready to figure out the best way to motivate children. Julia has earned a bachelors degree in psychology from American University and is beginning her masters in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Central Oklahoma this fall, 2015.
