Spring Has Sprung!

April 14, 2021 | Felicity Greene

In the time before break and since returning to school, the Sky Class has spent as many days as possible soaking up the sunshine and playing outside in the beautiful spring weather, shedding layers of jackets, hats, and gloves as it becomes warmer.

The change in seasons has also prompted some observations from the children as they delight in the nature that is blossoming around them and the creatures that are reappearing after the cold winter months.

“The trees have flowers on them!”

“Look, I see a tiny spider!”

 

“There is a bird taking a bath in that puddle!”

 

 

“They are planting things!”

“I wonder what it’s going to look like after everything has grown.”

 

Several of the fields that the children usually play in are being seeded at the moment, causing the class to play in some previously unexplored areas of Church Square Park.  The children and teachers have found so much joy in this, seeing what new games and ideas are discovered thanks to the change in scenery.

 

“Duck, duck…goose!”

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.
