What I do
I teach first grade general studies. I am a firm believer in keeping positive through every aspect of the day. Through positive discipline, a solid reward system and plenty of patience, I am able to build my students’ confidence in their academic abilities.
How I make a difference at YTCTE
I believe that by building my students’ confidence at an early age and giving them a solid foundation, it will assist them with their future academics.
My favorite part about what I do
I love interacting with my students every day. First grade is a year of tremendous academic and growth. I take pride in knowing that I was part of that growth!
I love teaching in a Jewish school and having a class full of adorable girls at YTCTE. This was a first for me and my girls love when I show them how to style their hair in new and creative ways.
