    Welcome to our classroom!  In our preschool classroom, children are active participants in the process of learning new concepts through individual and group experiences and activities.  Our students have many opportunities incorporated into their day to support the development of self-help and social skills which are an important component for their transition to kindergarten.

    Each week our lesson plan will link together specific curriculum objectives integrating activities that reflect the children’s interests.  Through play, these activities support development in the Creative Curriculum’s Eleven Experiences of Development and Learning (Blocks, Dramatic Play, Toys and Games, Discovery, Sand/Water, Art, Literacy, Technology, Cooking, Music and Movement, and Outdoors).   The Mathematics area includes the preschool edition of the Everyday Math Curriculum used at Paddock. 

    The children have opportunities for hands-on experimenting and interactions with classmates, which encourages them to make predictions and experience outcomes in all areas of learning.
    Through teacher-directed and child-initiated activities, teachers have the opportunity to observe and assess as children develop and strengthen their skills.  These outcomes are shared with parents during conferences.

    Our goal for the children is a relationship-based environment with peers, teachers, and families working together to enhance learning, create friendships, and promote positive outcomes.

I am so excited about this journey that I will be on this year with the children in the Bluegill Room.  This is my first year as a lead preschool teacher.  However, I spent the past 4 years with the Tree Frog class  here at PECC.  Before that I was a sub in the program.  Learning is a great priority for me.  I am currently working on my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education at Washtenaw Community College.  

My goal this year is that your child will love school and consequently develop a love for learning as well.  Much of this learning will be taking place through play, small groups, activities that cover our curriculum objectives and exposure to many learning experiences.

Personally, I grew up in Milan, have been married for 23 years, with three children (2 boys and 1 girl) who keep us very busy, and I have many animals that entertain me and fulfill my love for animals. And when I am not home I am usually at one of my children’s sporting events or camping.

Welcome to Preschool! My name is Angelica Wilson and I will be a part of your child's Preschool team this year. This will be my second year as a preschool teacher and I am very excited for the opportunity. I began as a volunteer for Paddock when my son was in kindergarten and daughters were attending First Steps. I fell in love with Paddock and Milan. This will be my fifth year at PECC. I have been a substitute for preschool and the toddler room and have worked in the infant room for the last four years . I received my Child Development Associates  (CDA) for preschool last year.

Outside of work my happy place is spending time with my family. My husband, Patrick of 14 years , my son Christian (13yrs) and twin daughters Angelina and Amerie (10yrs). We love traveling to ballparks, running as a family, and enjoy being near water . We’ve lived in Milan for 9 years now. We absolutely love the community and the small town feel. . On my spare time you  will also find me cheering on my children in their many activities.

I look forward to helping your child discover the joys of learning and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child’s education.
