Mrs. Talsky has served as our first grade teacher since 2016. She is looking forward to taking on kindergarten as well this year. She has a bachelor’s degree in community development and a master’s degree in teaching, specifically curriculum design and implementation. She believes that when students are surrounded by a strong sense of community they are able to take risks and obtain leadership roles that support their growth as individuals both socially and academically. She strives to support the emotional and academic development of her students by encouraging them to explore the beauty of multiple cultures through reading, music, dance, and art.
