Year started at Creative School: 2012

Sneak peek about me: I graduated from the University of Texas, married Sandy Miller, and moved to Dallas. We have three children (Walt, Shelby, and Brent), and four grandchildren. Besides spending as much time as I can with the grandkids, I enjoy cooking and spending time in my backyard with our black Lab, Tank, and the doves, blue jays, chickadees, cardinals and hummingbirds. 

Words to live by: A direct quotation, often attributed to Einstein, runs: “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

Favorite movie: Mary Poppins (the original)

First car: A tractor

 

Teaching philosophy: “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” -Fred Rogers

Sneak peek about me: In my spare time, which is rare with our family of five, I enjoy reading and writing poetry when the inspiration strikes. 

Favorite Scripture: Proverbs 3:5 – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

Words to live by: Do the right thing, even when no one is watching. 

Favorite Movie: Lost in Translation

 

One goal in my classroom this year: To promote language development while developing social and interpersonal skills in a nurturing, play-centered, environment

 

 

The Creative School is a non-profit school and a ministry of  Walnut Hill United Methodist Church. Educating children in north Dallas for over 60 years, we offer programs for children from 20 months of age through Prekindergarden 4s. We operate on a 9 month calendar, September – May. 

 

Our morning preschool hours are 9 A.M.  – 12 noon with an optional extended program until 2 pm. We provide a secure and Christian environment that encourages children to learn and grow. 

 

Our preschool curriculum is developmentally appropriate and addresses all areas of early childhood development including: literacy, math, science, art and fine motor. Enrichment classes include Music and Movement, Spanish, and Library. Our older children also attend a weekly chapel service.
