Sara Estrada

Preschool Teacher

Ms. Sara was a parent at Open Door Preschool from 2003 to 2006. She volunteered and also did her student teaching here. She graduated from Richland Community College with an Associate of Arts Degree with a major in Bilingual Education-ESL. She has been on our staff since 2006, and continued her education at The University of Texas at Dallas. She believes that children learn best through play, both indoor and outdoor, and that play should happen naturally. She believes that it is very important to understand how each child is acquiring knowledge in all areas of development through the exploration of the various learning centers using active, hands-on materials and activities. She says children are like sponges, and they absorb everything through their five senses; Sara emphasizes the importance of developing each one of these senses. She loves to challenge the potential of each child and respond to their individual needs and interests accordingly.
