Welcome to Room 15!

     I was born and raised in Israel, where, in 1982, I received my first teaching credential in special education and Hebrew literature. After moving to the United States, I taught in private schools. In 2001, when I completed my Multiple Teaching Credential, I began working at Darby Avenue Elementary School. Since then, I have taught kindergarten, second, fourth, and fifth-grade classes. I have been a first-grade teacher for the past two years. I enjoy teaching all grades. Fortunately, the grade I happen to be teaching always becomes my favorite. In 2014, I became a National Board Certified Teacher. I enjoy learning and I wish to inspire my students to become life-long learners as well.
