Welcome to my Pre-K classroom!
My name is Ms. MacClamrock and this is my third year teaching here at Woodrow Wilson. I have been teaching Pre-Kindergarten since I graduated in 2013. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with my bachelors in Child and Family Development with a license to teach Birth through Kindergarten. My vision is for all my students to have an equal opportunity to learn and grow throughout the year in order to prepare them for Kindergarten. Each month we will discuss different topics, work on letter recognition, identify letter sounds, practice handwriting, introduce and practice math skills, and support social and emotional development for each student.
