My name is Pam Schelfhout (Mrs. "S"). This is my  10th year teaching 3-year old preschool at St. Patrick School. I am married and I have 7 children. My husband and I were fortunate enough to care for my nephew Jason and niece Jordyn. They both graduated from Aquinas High School. My oldest son Gabe graduated from AHS in May. Abby is starting her Senior year at Aquinas High School, Isaac his sophomore year,  Lucas his 7th grade year at AMS, and Izzy is starting  4th grade  at Blessed Sacrament . We are very busy with sharing the love of sports. Our family hobbies include camping, biking, playing cards, watching college basketball {March Madness), and we love the  Brewers! ! I enjoy arts and crafts, and spending time with  friends and family.

In my classroom I will always do my best to provide a safe, fun, and loving environment for all my students to learn and grow.  Play is a big part of our day. I feel it is the most important part of the learning process in preschool. A child will be able to construct the knowledge to learn how to problem solve, to create, process emotions, discover, challenge themselves, laugh, learn to work together, learn to lead, express themselves, and have fun through PLAY. Physically their fine motor and gross motor skills will be practiced and developed. It is not "just play", but skills for life!
