Something new is happening in the Sky Class each week… the children are having music!
Since she cannot come to the Sky classroom, Dr. Smith (and her good friend John the Rabbit), are visiting the children via Zoom every Tuesday after worship.
So far, the children have been enjoying participating in some new chants, helping to read poems, and learning about the different sounds that their voices can make.
It has been so fun for the children to move use their bodies and voices in new ways, and are looking forward to what they will learn next with Dr. Smith!
Teacher, Sky Class
Felicity Greene joined staff in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and a minor in Children’s Literature and Childhood Studies. During her student teaching placement, Ms. Greene immediately felt at home in the classroom and is delighted to now be working at Mustard Seed among such a supportive and stimulating staff.
Excited to work at a school where she is free to incorporate her faith, Ms. Greene facilitates expression and exploration of faith with her students in the Sky class. She’s passionate about the role of literature in a child’s development and interested in development in general. She’s grateful to work at a school that pays such close attention to developmental markers in children, as she views developmental awareness to be a vital tool in teaching and caring for each child.
Ms. Greene is also delighted to be back in New Jersey where she grew up, able to be close to her childhood church community and family, especially now that she is newly an aunt. Along with her love of teaching, Ms. Green is passionate about baking as well as ice skating, in which she has competed in both individual and team competitions for more than twelve years. In addition to competing, Felicity also enjoyed coaching both children and adults with the Special Olympics Figure Skating Program in West Orange, New Jersey for several years.
