Hi, my name is Victoria Taber, Viky. I live just outside of Albany, New York, and I am very excited to start my residency within my district. I currently work for Albany City School District and am ready to continue my career here with the staff and students I have been working with for the past six years. I earned my BA through SUNY Empire in history and am finishing my degree in Special Education through NYU. I am excited to attend this program and learn and teach along side my fellow co-workers and students to make me the best teacher I can be!
What about the residency are you most looking forward to?
I am looking forward to learning and growing into a great teacher within the district I work within currently. I love the students and staff I work with and I can not wait to learn and grow with them.
Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?
I had a high school teacher who saw the potential I had that I didn't see. He pushed me to do my best in everything I put my mind to. He helped me graduate high school and gave me guidance into my career today. I always think back at how he helped me get through the "tough" years of high school and that is exactly what I get to do with all the students I cross paths with.
