Meet Mrs. Stacey Waldman
Mrs. Waldman was destined to work with the primary grades. She loves – no, adores – working with elementary schoolers and you sense it the moment you enter her classroom. There’s a warm, playful, community feel to it, with each student glowing from the nurturing environment.
What I do
Whether we’re learning reading, writing, language arts, math, science or social studies, I bring out my student’s confidence, so they can realize how special they are. That’s how they’re able to reach their potential!
How I make a difference at YTCTE
I make sure the boys in my class feel a sense of belonging. They always feel loved and appreciated, and that inspires them to thrive.
My favorite part about what I do
It’s so rewarding to watch a boy come into first grade with emerging reading skills and then leave a fluent reader. But even more rewarding is the transformation that happens when a student who didn’t believe in himself changes his mindset, and then works on growing until he believes he can succeed.
I believe every child wants to do his best and make his peers, teachers and families proud. Each day, that drives me to find something special about my students and highlight it so they can believe it, too.
