Perla Hernandez Sotelo is the lead p.m. teacher in the Sun classroom.

Elly Martinez-Kukowski is the assistant teacher in the Sun classroom. This is Elly’s first year with us, and they teach because they believe young people are not only our future, they are our present and it’s important to invest in them! What Elly likes about Joyce is our dedication to authenticity that allows people to bring in diverse perspectives that facilitates learning for all ages. A fun fact about Elly is that they play multiple instruments including piano, banjo, and guitar!

Major Goals and Milestones

With the rollout of Reggio Emilia curriculum this year, the goal is to allow children to be the leaders of their learning with open ended learning plans.  Children will be encouraged to engage in play based exploration in areas that capture their interest. From here, teachers will be able to adjust the curriculum to the specific needs and interests of their students.
