Shira's Teaching Philosophy

As a teacher, I try to create a classroom environment where every student is valued as an individual and where all students and teachers work together to build a respectful and supportive community. I try to instill a love for Israel and Torah along with a love for reading and writing. I want children to be excited about learning and empowered to be as independent as they can be. I believe that even the youngest students are capable of great thinking and discovery, and part of my job as a teacher is to create opportunities for them to explore and wonder about the world around them.
