Conference Time: 1:00 - 2:00PM

Hi, I'm Tiffany Miles, and I am so excited to be your child's PreK teacher this year.  I absolutely love teaching PreK.  This will be my 17th year teaching and my 2nd year teaching our amazing PreK Hornets.  

 

 

I grew up in the area and went to school in Rogers from K-12.  My husband, Marshall, is a graduate of Holland ISD and attended school here from K-12 as well.  We both attended and graduated from Texas A&M University.  Whoop!  We have been married for 16 years and have two wonderful kids.  Kase, a 5th grader, and Matilla "Tilley", a Kindergartener.  We also have 2 rambunctious puppies, Spot & Bandit, and a cat named Camo.  We love to be outdoors as a family and go hunting, fishing, playing ball, swimming, etc.

It is important for your child to come to school daily to fully participate and succeed academically, socially, and emotionally; however, due to the continued concern in regards to the pandemic, please do not send your child to school if they are sick.  Please refer to the Holland ISD policy for more details.  Thank you for doing your part to keep our littlest Hornets healthy. 

 

Behavior Expectations

To encourage positive behavior in our classroom we need to teach students the classroom rules, routines, and procedures so they can learn how to self-regulate. Behavior is a skill that must be learned, just like learning how to tie your shoes or recite the alphabet is a skill that you learned when you were a child.  In Pre-K we will be continuously modeling and practicing this skill. Pre-K will use a ticket incentive behavior management system. Tickets can be redeemed in our class store.

Orange Ticket: They had a great & expected day

Purple Ticket: They had an outstanding & role model day

Yellow Ticket: A rule reminder card 

Behavior/ticket color will be noted in the take home folders and/or communicated through Class DoJo.  See behavior expectations for further detail.

Change of Clothes

Please send a change of clothes in a labeled ziplock bag to be kept at school.  

Include: shirt, shorts, underwear, and socks.

Nap Time

Students are encouraged to nap for one hour a day.  Nap mats are provided. 

Please send a light blanket that will fit in their backpack.  Please wash the 

blanket weekly. 

 

Water

Please send a labeled water bottle daily.  We have access to refill the bottle as needed.  A covered top is recommended. Please wash this daily.

Class Pet

We have a class pet in our classroom. She is a rabbit named, Pam. She loves to get out of her cage and hop around our room to interact with our kids. Pam helps to teach our kids responsibility and how to handle our pets correctly.
