How do you address the emotional, social and academic needs of your students?

"In our class, children do not have the words to express how they feel. We try to help them learn emotions through songs and different exercises. In our class, we plan different activities that the children work and play together. We try to create a class that children can learn on different skill levels."


“My highlight is working with the children. It is a challenge working with 2 year olds but I love my job!”
