2ND GRADE TEACHING ASSISTANT
Before the pandemic, I frequently found myself going through the motions, overlooking the essential meanings behind lessons both within and beyond the confines of the classroom (as a student and teacher). The silver lining for me has been the ability to holistically reflect and simply be; thus, providing me a foundation to grow as a person and teacher. This opportunity changed my life in that it has broadened my understanding of Jewish values and deepened my connection with my students. I now recognize I am learning alongside each and every one of the students I have the honor to teach; and I couldn’t be more grateful for that.
