Mrs. Becky Gibel
Hi :) My name is Becky Gibel and I teach in the prekindergarten. WELCOME to the 2020-2021 school year!! This year will be my 25th year teaching in Cleveland. Proudly and thankfully, I have spent the majority of those years at WCB!! I have been in a variety of grade levels with the past 7 years teaching in the preK classroom. I am especially fortunate to be a part of an amazing team of teachers in preK! We all have hearts for the youngest learners ♥ ! This will be quite a different year for us.... meeting and teaching all of you virtually, but we are still so excited to start this year and get to know each of our students and their families!
Our preK strives to promote and enhance each child's academic, social, emotional, and physical growth and development through...
**hands-on, interactive and child-centered learning
**developmentally appropriate teaching strategies
**partner, one on one, small group, whole group learning
**student independence and cooperation
**the integration of language arts (reading readiness, writing, speaking/listening), math, science, social studies, art, music, fine and gross motor, and social-emotional skills
**meeting the individual needs of each child
I look forward to partnering with parents to create a fun and successful first school experience for each of our prekindergarteners!! As communication is a very important part of this success, at any time during the year, please share with us your questions and comments through email or any of our virtual platforms.
