The floating preschool teacher is assigned to our pre-K classroom.  This person will provide vacation and sick call coverage across our three preschool classrooms and our afterschool program as needed.  The floating preschool teacher supports the classroom teachers to provide a warm, nurturing, safe, and loving environment that promotes the development of the whole child developing a foundation for social and emotional competence.  Teachers are active participants with the children; facilitating communication, collaboration, and problem solving while providing opportunities for the children to explore their environment and build their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
