Mrs. Martine Assad
Hi! My name is Mrs. Assad and this will be my fourth year teaching Kindergarten at Van Derveer! More importantly, I am thrilled to be your teacher! It is going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to know ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I was born in Gladstone, NJ and I am the youngest of three children. I have an older sister and an older brother. They are my best friends! I attended Grove City College in western Pennsylvania to obtain my teaching degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. This is my sixth year teaching and I still love it as much as the first day I started. Previously I taught Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten in a private school setting. I also spent time in Niger, Africa where I was teaching first grade! There is so much to share about my time in Africa so please feel free to ask me about it, if you’re interested. You can even take a peek at a picture of me riding a camel to the left!!
I am so excited to be your Kindergarten teacher and for you to be my Kindergartener! This is going to be a fantastic year!
Love, Mrs. Assad
