Ms. Oats

Hello, I would like to take the time to introduce my self. My name is Sharonda Oats, I was born here in Ocala, and grew up in Waukegan, Illinois. I graduated from Ashford University and earned my degree in Social Science. This is my 5th year teaching for the public school, and my 3rd year here in  Pre-K. Before coming to the county I worked as a Head Start teacher here in Marion County for 10 years. I love teaching this age group because, they are so eager to learn. I love to watch their faces light up with each new experience. If your child tells you everyday that all the did was play, believe them. We currently use the play based learning curriculum, titled Beyond Centers & Circle Time. It is believed that this type of curriculum fosters creativity and imagination, develop social and emotional skills, supports pre-literacy and language skills. However, academic concepts are included in ALL aspects of our day.
