"I'm excited to be returning to Little Gate for my fifth year as a toddler teacher. I love working with this age because you really get to see a difference in their growth from the beginning of the year to the end. In my spare time I enjoy working out, fishing, and relaxing and cooking with my husband. I am looking forward to working with my co teacher and good friend again this year. We cannot wait to meet our new butterflies and watch them grow throughout the year!"

"For the past two years, I have been a substitute  at McGehee's Little Gate and I am beyond ecstatic to start my first year as a teacher!  In my spare time I love spending time with family and friends, attempting to cook new and exciting things and going on walks and exploring New Orleans with my husband and son.  I feel like McGehee provides a great place for children to be creative and explore their surroundings.  I love seeing and hearing the funny things children can dream up when they play.  I know we have a wonderful year of learning and many fun activities planned.  I can't wait to see y'all in the fall!"



Beautiful Butterflies

Ms. Laura and Ms. Jennifer

The Butterfly class had a busy month in November!  We had so much fun exploring with light and shadows at our annual Light at night! The kids loved seeing and playing at their school at night time! We explored with tons of fall activities this past month as well. Painting with dish brushes was a hit and then we turned them into turkeys! Our manipulative table was filled with leaves and boxes and our favorite book was "Five Silly Turkeys!" We are getting ready for the holiday season now and are so excited to do lots of winter activities!
