Welcome to the white room!  My name is Pam Bakerlis. I am the lead teacher in the white room.  I have thirty-two years of experience in the early childhood field. Fourteen of those years have been at the ECC.  My own children and students have taught me many valuable lessons over the years. I would like to think we have learned from each other.  The white room is also fortunate to have two experienced classroom aides as well as 1:1 aides who will participate in facilitating learning in the white room.   

Although it is difficult to let go of summer, I am excited to begin a new school year.  As a result, our dramatic play center will contain a party theme, complete with party hats, decorations and pretend party food.  This month, many of our other centers will include play which will be geared toward review and assessment of students individual skills.  Beginning activities will include learning to use classroom materials, self-awareness, getting to know each other and working/playing in a group.   Our class work will be differentiated according to each student’s individual needs.  

A folder will be sent home in your child’s backpack.  This folder is intended for class work and parent-teacher correspondence.  Please check this folder daily. Parent teacher correspondence may also take place by phone or email.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me. It is also possible to set up a conference, if necessary.
