My name is Wanda Bland. I teach Pre-K. I have a degree in Early Childhood Technology. I have taught in early childhood for 32 years. My first six years were at First Baptist in Tupelo, Mississippi. I am starting my 26 th year at TCPS. Believing each child is a gift from God, my responsibility as an early childhood educator is to provide a safe and healthy environment. It is my desire to nurture, support, and provide a curriculum to meet each child at their age and stage of development. TCPS Pre-K Curriculum consists of the following: Phonics and Handwriting: Sing, Spell, Read and Write along with an introduction to SMILA Bible: Design a Division of ACSI Weekly Units: Includes Social Studies, Science, Math, Art, Music, Cooking, and Field Trips I believe what makes TCPS Pre-K Program unique, is that we are able to teach a Christian world view throughout our day. We have the privilege to stop and pray any time during our day. Our students are taught scriptures to help with character training, which is one the supreme goals of Christian Education.
