"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

This past month the butterflies were so excited about Halloween! We had fun and creative items in our manipulative table. The butterflies dyed pasta orange and we added some creepy crawlers and skeletons and they had little strainers to try and pick them up! We made sun catcher Frankensteins, foot print ghost, tissue paper pumpkins and we even carved our very own class pumpkin!
