I am a senior at Westmont High School in Campbell. I am eighteen years old, and love art, music, and teaching. This project allowed me to experience the combination of the above. I am a Madrichim, or student teacher, at Congregation Shir Hadash where I currently assist teaching two sixth grade classes and one kindergarten class a week, for a total of approximately seven hours; this is my second year.
Throughout the process of my teaching I feel like I am brightening the students lives, from when I help to teach the students chants, or songs, supervise an art project, or simply provide encouragement and a positive attitude.
Recently I have participated in the school play Once on this Island, and this experience allowed me to grow through teaching me about time management skills, and choosing priorities, sometimes through compromise.
Once again thank you for visiting my website.
