Position: Family Educator
Hello! My name is Jessica Oliver (Ms. Jess) and I am excited to be in my fourth year of teaching preschool at Campbell Elementary! I teach in the mornings and I believe that children excel when the family and school work together to create great opportunities for them.
I graduated from University of Nebraska - Lincoln with my Bachelor's of Science in Inclusive Early Childhood Education.
A note on Creative Curriculum:
Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning. Creative Curriculum for Preschool is based on five fundamental principles:
Positive interactions and relationships with adults provide a critical foundation for successful learning.
Social–emotional competence is a significant factor in school success.
Constructive, purposeful play supports essential learning.
The physical environment affects the type and quality of learning interactions.
Teacher–family partnerships promote development and learning.
Second Step is the Social Emotional Learning Curriculum. This curriculum helps preschoolers:
Learn social skills
Develop problem solving abilities
Foster independence and self-control
The Early Childhood Pyramid Model provides a framework of evidence-based practices that
promote young children's social emotional competence, and prevent and
address challenging behaviors. The three tiers of the Pyramid Model include: high quality learning environments that have positive behavior expectations and predictable routines; the intentional teaching of social-emotional strategies; and individualized interventions for children who need a positive behavior support plan.
