Degrees and Certifications:
Hi. My name is Sophia Osmanski and I am so excited to be your child’s Early Childhood Pre-kindergarten teacher. This year is going to be filled with lots of learning and new adventures, and I cannot wait for the fun to begin. But first, let me tell you a little about myself.
Back in the mid 1990's, I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Throughout the years, I have continued my education and earned an Endorsement in English as a Second Language as well as a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and certification in teaching Special Education.
During the first part of my teaching career, I spent 10 years as a teacher, nine of which were as a kindergarten teacher, so I am very familiar in what your child will need to know to be ready for when he/she begins kindergarten.
After having my second child I decided to be a stay at home mom with my two beautiful and talented daughters, who are currently ages 15 and 18. Stephanie, my oldest, is a Freshman at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technoloy studying to be a mechanican engineer. She has grown into an amazing artist, musician, as well as academically talented student. Allie, my younger daughter has talents that are stronger in a more physical sense and she is a competitive gymnast where she competes at the Junior Olympic level. It has been quite the experience raising two extremely different personalities! During this time raising my daughters I had an enjoyable time being a Girl Scout leader, room party mom, field trip chaperone, and assisted in multiple educational programs at the schools my daughters attended.
I returned to the Queen Bee School District 6 years ago to the Early Childhood and have taught all the various programs availaible here since that time.
I am looking forward to getting to know all of the children whether it is in person or online. I am sure that all of us will learn so much in the upcoming months! I have been in your shoes, so I know what it is like to be a parent, as well as a teacher.
