Recently Yolanda Pierce (Ms. Yo) exclaimed, “All of my posts are about nature walks and adventures outdoors. Maybe because that’s my favorite thing to do?”
Hillside Academy is lucky to have a teacher intensely dedicated and invested in the education of our 4 and 5 year old students. Ms. Yolanda comes from a family of educators. She is currently the educator who has been with Hillside the longest of any of our teachers. Her two Pre-K classes fill up quickly during open enrollment. It is apparent that she truly prepares young learners to be interested in education and parents recognize this.
Even a walk in nature is tied to the foundation of her class, which is prepping these children for kindergarten.
The images above are of Ms. Yo’s lesson on nurse logs! From the looks on the children’s faces it seems that her lesson invigorated their senses.
Every school needs a Ms. Yo. Hillside is lucky to have her.
