Welcome to Room 5
Preschool for All Program
I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you and your child to a new year at Player Early Childhood Center. As the new school year begins, I would like to start off by introducing myself. My name is Amal Hasan, and I am your child’s classroom teacher. This is my 20th year working in education with early childhood students. I have worked for 14 years for the Head Start program in District 109 and this is my 6th year with the Preschool for all program. My major is in early childhood education, and I am a fluent speaker of Arabic. In addition to that, I also completed the English language learner endorsement (ELL) and want to utilize it by giving support to ELL’s in our district by developing and strengthening their English skills in order to be successful. I recently completed my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University and I look forward to implement the latest best practices and interventions that I researched for my final project.
I would also like to introduce Alaa Mahmoud. She is our paraprofessional in the classroom. Alaa has her bachelor degree in educational studies and is a fluent speaker in Arabic. We are looking forward to working with you and your child throughout the year. We will have many joyous learning opportunities ahead of us! I am confident that together we can provide the support and encouragement needed to help your child achieve his/her potential.
