Miss Marlo, Miss Cindy & Miss April


Hi,  my name is Marlo Smith.  I am a native of Carteret County.  This is my 7th year teaching Pre K at Graham A Barden. I have a degree in Recreation Therapy.  When my youngest child entered Kindergarten, I began working as a teacher assistant.  I worked  in schools in the NC Mountains and in Carteret County.. It was during this time, that I realized that I wanted to be a teacher and that my heart was truly in early intervention.  So, I went back to school and obtained a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education (BK) from Mount Olive College.  My husband is a retired Marine.  We have been married for 25 years. We have a son who is a 2013 Graduate of NC State University and now is working towards a Master's Degree in Public Administration.  Our daughter is a sophomore at NC State majoring in Animal Science. I have 2 super nephews, a dachshund named Zoey, a cat named Angel, and 3 goats.  I love teaching Pre K.  I have the best job the world!


My name is Cindy Parker, I have worked at GAB for 4 years as a caregiver. I am a native of Carteret County. I have been married for 23 years. I have been working with young children for 19 years and I love working with children with special needs.


My name is April Silvio and this will be my 3rd year as a Teacher Assistant in Pre K here at GAB. I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA. My husband is the Marine Corps and we have been married for 13 years.  I have 2 children that both attend GAB.  I just completed my last class for my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education and will be student teaching the first part of the school year. See everyone around Thanksgiving!


This Month:  Letter="A", Shape=Circle, Color=Red

We will read The Kissing Hand and Hurray for Pre K. 

We will learn classroom rules and work on becoming friends. 

Classroom Mission:  We will learn through play; have fun; and get along together.

Classroom Vision:  Miss Marlo's class will be able to share, get along, follow directions, improve social skills, and learn pre-academic skills in order to be better prepared for Kindergarten. 

About Pre K at GAB:  We serve children (ages3-5) who have been identified as having special needs.  We also have some slots available for those children without special needs.  We use The Creative Curriculum. Please call 252-444-5100 for more information.
