My name is Cheri Koenig. I have been the Early Childhood Special Educator for ESU 5 for going on 21 years. I have taught in the Southern School District since the preschool was started in Southern in 2001. I have four awesome sons Andy, Benjamin, Casey and Jesse, two wonderful daughters-in-law, Christina and Mia and a 14-month-old granddaughter, Harper. I live near De Witt with my companion, Delaney, who is an Australian/English shepherd mix. I love working with young children! They can make every day so exciting! The Southern Shining Stars Preschool program continues to grow every year. I teach at the Blue Springs site where we currently are serving 19 children in two sessions held Monday through Thursday. The preschool classroom has several areas in which the children can experience a variety of activities to promote language development, independence, creativity and social skills. These areas include activities for Block Building, Music, Science/Discovery, Reading, Puzzles, Art and Dramatic Play. The preschool also has an awesome playground with equipment for climbing and sliding, a track for riding trikes, two sandboxes and trees for shade.
