Congrats, and thank you for all that you do.  Way to go Mrs. Luna, Mrs. Andrew, Mrs. Nieves, and Mrs. Pack.  When asked what their favorite part of their job was, this is what they had to say:


Mrs. Luna: My favorite parts about my job are having the opportunity to work with students and to watch them grow in their own learning.  My other favorite part is working with my grade level and the supportive staff, which help me become a better teacher.


Mrs. Andrew:  My favorite part about being a teacher is working with my kids each day.  I also love working with my awesome first grade team!


Mrs. Nieves: I am so blessed to get to work with some of the most awesome people in the world; I love working with my Pre-K students, each day I learn so much more than I could ever teach them.


Mrs. Pack: My favorite part about my job is having the opportunity to teach an amazing group of students and to help them become more successful readers and writers.  I also enjoy getting to work with the awesome staff members at PPE.

Congrats, Mrs. Blair, Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Fasano-Gilman, and Mrs. Rivera.  Thanks for all you do for our students.  When asked what they enjoyed about their work, this is what they had to say:


Mrs. Blair: I enjoy challenging the kids, to help them get ready for the next step in their education.  And more importantly, to help them develop the skills they'll need to succeed at the next level.


Mrs. Lewis: The favorite part of my job is working with all the students in each grade level.  And being part of this awesome family here at Pershing Park.


Mrs. Fasano-Gilman: There are many rewarding moments when it comes to working with children.  However, I especially enjoy watching and helping students develop and ignite a passion for reading.


Mrs. Rivera: My favorite part is meeting new people and working with our wonderfull PPE family.

My favorite thing about teaching is witnessing my students succeed. I enjoy watching them become problem solvers and self-driven leaders. I admire their willingness and ability to learn the English language while maintaining their native language. Most of all, I appreciate the love and respect I receive from my students, parents, and co-workers on a daily basis.

The Little Pumas Club is currently enrolling new members.
The Little Pumas Club is an early literacy program, open for children of ages 3 to 4, not yet enrolled in school. 
Our main purpose is to teach children basic social and academic skills and have them acclimated to a school environment prior their first enrollment. 
This is a premier opportunity to bring your children to school and get them excited about learning while interacting with other kids. 
Join us and give your child a JUMP START at exploring learning! 
A parent must be present at every meeting and participate along with the child.
