Mrs. Shanon Byrnes

Hello Rice Rangers! I am delighted to be teaching PPCD at Rice Elementary and I can't wait to see what this school year has in store! I believe all children are capable of learning and I hold high expectations for all my students.

Play is an essential part of early learning. It is the lifeblood of the learning process. As children play they are developing the cognitive, socio-emotional and physical skills they will need to take them into successfull adulthood. They are developing their curiosity, problem solving, flexibility, and verbal and non-verbal skills. Socio-emotionally they are developing their emotional intelligence, learning confidence, cooperation, negotioation, sharing, empathy, and how to communicate appropriately. Physically, their fine motor and gross motor skills are being practiced and developed. It's not 'just play' they are skills for life!           -MHC Early Childhood Solutions
