Karolina Kala Pre-K Teacher

About Me

Born and raised in Poland. At age 12, came to United States to be with my family. Always wanted to be a teacher and achieved my goal in 2006. I have been teaching at Lorca's Pre-K room for 8 years and feel very grateful to have made many great memories with all the students. With the help of administration and colleagues, I was able to create a rich environment for our pre-K children while implementing early learning standards and personalized learning.

Our Pre-K Program

The Federico Garcia Lorca early childhood Ready to Learn preschool program offers an engaging and inviting environment for children ages 3- and 4-years old. Our onsite, high-quality program follows the school’s vision that all children, regardless of age, ability, and language can achieve their full potential with the support of their highly-qualified teachers, in partnership with the families.

At Lorca, we believe in the power of student-first and standard-based learning. Our program offers two preschool classrooms that are full-day in length. One of our classrooms offers Bilingual instruction for our English Learners and our other classroom follows an English as a Second Language model in order to support all of our diverse learners. In addition, not only does our early childhood program believe in the power of creating an academically stimulating environment for our students, we also believe in the necessity of providing a strong social and emotional base for all of our learners. We currently follow a standards-based, academic curriculum, The Creative Curriculum, and a wonderful social and emotional curriculum, Second Step to support our instruction. We offer engaging and motivating self-directed activities, as we strongly believe that the whole child should be developed.

Our collaboration with the families is important as we host parent and family workshops 8-10 times a school year. In partnership with the families, we work together to challenge and promote critical thinking and strong social skills within our students. We believe that all children are capable of incredible and wondrous things.

What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
