Welcome to my classroom page. My name is Tracy Carlson. I have been teaching Pre-Kindergarten since 1997. I took a break from Pre-k in 2003 and taught Kindergarten for a year. My first love is Pre-K! I graduated from UNO, with my degree in Early and Elementary Education, so I can teach from birth to 8th grade.
I am the mother of three boys, two dogs and a cat. We have a guinea pig ( Bugsy) who spends his weeks at school with me and weekends, breaks at home with my family. Bugsy is a very loved member of our classroom!
