Junior Kindergarten Assistant
I’m thrilled to be starting at Park West this year as a JK Assistant! My daughter blossomed as a student here, and I hope the same happens for me as a teacher. This is my first job out of graduate school, and I’m looking forward to steeping myself in Park West’s philosophy and the thoughtful and deliberate practice my colleagues bring to each day. I believe the Park West experience is empowering for children through its play-based approach and varied opportunities for problem solving. I value the chance to work with students on a social emotional level and make sure each child feels they have a voice in the classroom that is heard. As a parent at Park West I cherished the days I was able to spend at school. I can’t believe I now get to be here every day and be part of the daily explorations and discoveries the children will experience in the classroom.
