Preschool 3-4 year olds 
Meet Ms. Strelec 
 Welcome! The 2017-2018 school year begins my seventh year of teaching preschool with Orange Public Schools. Previously, I completed my student teaching and was a substitute Pre-k teacher and inclusion teacher for Orange beginning in 2008. I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology and Early Childhood Education at William Paterson University, where I also became a certified teacher for grades Pre-K through 5th grade. In 2011 I received my certificate of teaching for Teacher of Students with Disabilities. Becoming a teacher was always a lifelong dream of mine and teaching children brings me joy each day. I believe that all children can and will learn provided they are given the appropriate environment and materials to do so. I am hopeful that this school year will bring you as well as your children a fun filled learning adventure in which we will all work together to provide the best education for your child. I am looking forward to a great school year at OECC.
