Ms. Elizabeth Allgood
Hi! I'm Ms. Allgood!
This is my 4th year teaching at GAB and my 19th year teaching Prek! I earned my Bachelors in Birth to Kindergarten from ECU. I have always wanted to be a teacher from the time I was little. I consider my students as "my kids" and believe that we have a "class family". I focus very heavily on social emotional learning and regulation in the 1st half of the year and move more toward academics after Christmas.
My teaching influences are Becky Bailey's Conscious Discipline, the series of emotional regulation books by Diane ALber, and CSEFEL ( the Center on the Social Emotional Foundations for Early Learning). From these influences, you'll see references to the spots (a spot of kindness, scribble spot, a spot of anger, peaceful spot, etc), the safe place cozy corner, belly breathing and other calm down strategies, the Solution Kit to solve problems and resolve emotional conflicts, the School Family, feeling buddies, and Tucker the Turtle just to name a few. In our classroom, we use the Creative Curriculum and Second Step as our curriculums.
My favorite teams are UNC Basktball, Panthers Football, and Carolina Hurricanes Hockey! When I'm not at school, I enjoy traveling with my family & spending time at the pool, beach, or out in the boat. My favorite colors are teal and pink. Sweet & Salty Trail Mix and Sweet Tea are my favorite snack & drink. I'm not married, but I have a boyfriend and I have 2 teenagers at home.
I look forward to getting to know your child and your family. I can't wait to meet you all!
