Circles of Learning

Preschool Teachers

“Thank you to all our preschool teachers at Circles of Learning (COL)! We have worked to create a true collaboration between COL and RPS 205 staff. The work between all of the teachers benefits our students and the ability to implement the HighScope Curriculum and Pyramid Model social-emotional framework. The COL staff has been an important part alongside our RPS 205 teachers in carrying out our action steps to improve our systemwide framework focus.”

Summerdale Early Childhood Center

Stephanie Berg

“I will start by saying Stephanie is a special education teacher. l started working at Summerdale at the end of last year as a classroom para. I loved it. This year we had a student start in our class who was severely impacted developmentally and watching Stephanie interact and work with him was so incredibly inspiring. After speaking with her and helping with the student myself, Stephanie encouraged me to go for a special education para position. When I say that it has been life changing, I mean it. It is by far one of the best decisions I have ever made. I appreciate all of the resource teachers in our building. However, I am so incredibly grateful for Stephanie!”
