Welcome to Mockingbird Preschool! I am so excited to get a new year started! My name is Mrs. Shallenberger and I have been teaching preschool for 19 years, 18 of which have been in Ralston Public Schools. I received a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, with endorsements in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education from Peru State College. I later earned a Master's degree in Instructional Technology from Peru State College. I have three children of my own, ages eleven, nine, and seven years old. They all keep me very busy!
Our Preschool day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.
The Preschool door by the flag pole will be unlocked at 7:55 a.m. each morning.
There will be no Preschool classes at Mockingbird on Wednesdays.
My office hours are M-F 7:45 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
