What do you love about Sunset Park School?
I love that I am surrounded by equally devoted professionals who come to work with passion for teaching and eagerness to make every school day the best learning experience for students.
What do you love about your grade?
It’s amazing to see the progress of kindergarteners as they transition from home to school when every little independent achievement is a huge step.
Tell me the best professional development you went to this year:
I was very lucky to join a series of Responsive Classroom PD where I learned to establish a concrete goal in thinking about the kind of teacher I want to become.
If I asked your students what they love about SPS, what would they say?
My students would love SPS because they feel that it’s a welcoming and safe environment where they can learn to accept and make mistakes.
What positive changes have you seen in the past few years? What impact have they made on children?
This is my first year in PS 169 and I am very excited that the whole school is adopting the Responsive Classroom framework. I believe that children learn best when they’re both physically and emotionally secured and the framework help teachers cultivate such classrooms.
