SAVERA - LEAD TEACHER

Q: What year did you begin teaching at WNNS?

    A: I joined the WNNS team in 2015. After a one year break to take care of my newborn, I am so excited and happy to be back! 

Q: What was your favorite book when you were a child?

    A:  Since English is my second language, my mom helped me to read English through a book called Silly Billy by Tamara Kitt. I read this book over and over again. Was it my favorite? I'm not so sure, but it sure helped me to read! 

Q: What is your favorite children's book now?

    A: My favorite children's book now is We're Going On a Bear Hunt By Michael Rosen. I love this book because it's full of drama and imagination. I love the rhythm and rhyme of the book, it instantly connects to children. The emotional  elements are also so engaging for kiddos of all ages. They relate to the excitement, the adventure and the lingering anticipation of events to come. 

Q: What motivates you as a teacher? 

A: Children from the time they are born are incredible! Their brains are fired up, their hands are touching and responding to touch, and their personalities are being sharpened and shaped by every little experience... especially their social-emotional attributes. I am moved to provide a safe, secure, loving, and responsive environment to nurture the more cognitive experiences children can have! It's not easy, every kiddo is so different, every class is unique and I get to learn about someone new each year and these all are such motivating reasons for my practice! <3 

MIKE- ASSISTANT TEACHER

Q: What year did you begin teaching at WNNS?

1. 2018 


Q: What was your favorite book when you were a child?

2. As a kid, I read Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel over and over - such simple stories about the importance of friendship. Another favorite was Danny and the Dinosaur (Syd Hoff). 


Q: What is your favorite children's book now?

3. As a parent who's been reading to my kids for years, there are many. One is The Flying Hockey Stick, about a boy who uses his imagination and hard work to fly around the world on a hockey stick. Also anything by Julia Donaldson. 


Q: What motivates you as a teacher?

4.  As a parent of a child with special needs, who entered preschool needing a lot of support, I witnessed the miraculous work teachers can do to help a child overcome challenges. I want children to reach their full potential and blossom into confident, happy learners. Every moment is an opportunity to be a positive force, to show them your belief in their unique capabilities and acknowledge the work they're doing. I am thrilled to join WNNS and be a source of encouragement and growth for all the children here.
