ROMY - ASSISTANT TEACHER

Q: What year did you begin teaching at WNNS?

    A: 2017

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

    A: The Little Engine That Could Retold by Watty Piper

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

    A: Life Doesn't Frighten Me by Maya Angelou

Q: What motivates you as a teacher? 

    A: I view teaching as a reciprocal relationship; I know that I will undoubtedly learn from my students just as much as they will learn from me. As a result, I think of myself more as a guide helping a child along the way to learning all of the particulars that make them individuals as well as what they themselves can bring to a class setting. I am most motivated by watching children develop and become more confident and secure in who they are and what they desire to learn. I also love watching them discover all of their favorite things: color, animal, plant, friend, playground, shop, museum, art piece, song, dance, etc. There is nothing that brings me more joy than spending my days teaching children.
