Hi, I am Amrita! I am currently a Special Education teacher at Great Oaks Charter School.This will be my second year teaching. I was born and raised in the concrete jungle of New York City. I graduated from Hunter College with a BA in History and Childhood Education. I am very excited to share this journey with you all!
What about the residency are you most looking forward to?
One thing that I am most looking forward to is being able to put theory into practice. I am excited to be working in the field with students and building relationships. I am excited to share my experiences with others and learning together. I am grateful for all mentorship I will receive in order for me to become a even better and successful educator.
Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?
I came across this teacher during my elementary years. As a child I lacked self confidence and I was always afraid to take on challenges. However, she changed this for me. She took out the time to really get to know me and form a special relationship. She made me feel comfortable in the classroom and whenever I felt overwhelmed she told me it was okay to feel that way.
