My name is Maria and I have been working and educating young children for 13 years. For the past 10 years I worked for the NYC Department of Education. During my years of experience I worked as a pre-k assistant teacher which inspired me to become a teacher. This is my second year teaching preschool and I absolutely love it! I believe that a classroom should be a safe and caring community for children. When children feel safe they let their creativity shine which allows them to learn and explore within the pre-k classroom. I will use strategies to ensure our classroom community will blossom and grow such as; our morning meeting, problem-solving skills, accountable talk, classroom jobs, and most importantly positive communication.

I am Victoria Tessitore, and I am so excited to join the Kiddie Academy team. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Childhood Education from Molloy College. I have 11 years experience teaching Pre-K, and I am CPR/First Aid certified. I have always had a passion for teaching since I was little. I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my goal to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe and supportive.
