About The Teacher
Hi! For those of you who don't already know me, I'm Robin Fillion and I'm going to be your child's preschool teacher for the next year. Many of you are "repeat" families and know that when I'm not at school, I live at home in Bow with my husband, Rick, and my kitty Buddy, who turned 16 this summer. I am a religious runner/walker and I especially love walking on the beach! This summer I went to Old Orchard Beach and also to Gloucester Massachusetts to the beach. I visited family in North Carolina and also in Washington DC--it has been a very busy summer! As many of you already know, I became a Grammie on November 28, 2014 and I love getting to DC as often as possible to see my grandson Liam. If your child mentions "Liam" it's him--I share lots and lots of pictures with the kids! I have been teaching at NBCS since 2000, and have made it my second home. I have come to love the community, the people, and especially my colleagues. I completed my Master's degree in Special Education in 2004, and have continued to take a variety of courses to stay "fresh." I couldn't imagine myself teaching any other age than my preschoolers, and those of you who know me well,know that one of my greatest passions is working with families of children on the autism spectrum. I've taken quite a bit of coursework on Applied Behavioral Analysis and love working 1 on 1 with students as well as with the whole group. I'm excited and looking forward to a great year!
Mission For The Class
My mission for your children is as much for your family as it is for them. I hope that your entire family is excited about and invested in your child's first experience in school as am I. I look at your children as our baby birds that are learning the skills they need to be ready to try to fly out of the nest. We work very hard to: use our words, acknowledge how others feel, try new things, try again if we make mistakes, realize it's ok to make mistakes and feel oh so proud of our accomplishments! If your child leaves me in June with self confidence, compassion, and a love for learning, we have done our jobs and they will learn to fly and be excited to try their wings. �
