Hi, I am Ayesha.
I am the Lead Teacher of the Threes Preschool class here at Zimmer.
I am extremely excited to embark on this new journey as I strive to provide the best developmentally appropriate, intellectually stimulating, and nurturing environment for our young scholars. My passion and zeal for learning, as well as my pursuit of becoming a teacher stemmed from my own positive Early Childhood Educational experience with my former preschool teacher, who left a lasting imprint on my life due to her patient, thoughtful and caring nature.
I believe that Early Childhood Education is the foundation of brain development and has a major impact on every student’s academic success. A quality Early Childhood Education program should strengthen a child’s cognitive development, socioemotional, and language skills, which are all essential for growth. As an educator my goal is to help my students gain confidence and pride in their intellectual abilities and interpersonal relationships.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in addition to the Early Childhood Education certifications of Preschool, and Infant/Toddler CDAs. I also have over ten years of experience working with children of various ages in several capacities such as being a tutor, teacher’s assistant, Girl Scouts leader, mentor, babysitter, summer camp counselor, Infant Lead Teacher, and Preschool Lead Teacher. I am also a proud mother of a beautiful baby boy.
In my free time I enjoy the simple pleasures of life in particular spending quality time with family, trying new recipes together, and relaxing while listening to my favorite songs. I also enjoy more adventurous pursuits like traveling to beautiful islands, taking cruises, zip-lining, swimming, and exploring new cultures.
I am overjoyed at the opportunity to cultivate positive relationships with the students and families of Zimmer, and I am certain that this will be an amazing school year.
