Mrs. Elizabeth Christides
Hi! Welcome to Pre K. My name is Elizabeth Christides. I have been a Pre-Kindergarten teacher at St. Demetrios Elementary for over ten years. It is such a joy to watch your children and families grow. Many valuable lessons and developmental milestones take place during the early years of your child's schooling. I find it extremely important for every child to grow and learn and thier own pace. I try to make each day a new adventure filled with fun. Throughout the day, I try to incorporate stories, songs and art in everything we learn. Personally, I love reading and crafts so I like to incorporate those things in my lessons as often as possible. I also like to take notice of what the children are intrested in and build my lessons based on those interests. Often we read stories and create projects from those stories in order to improve our comprehension and building our creativity. In my experience I have found this to be the best way for young children to learn. I strive to give my students a new love of reading and a sense of individuality that will take them into the next step of their education, Kindergarten.
