Leah is a seasoned teacher now residing on the Upper West Side. After receiving her master's degree in education, she taught kindergarten in New Jersey for three years. She then looped with her kindergarten class to first grade. During her first four years teaching, she taught test prep courses after school to third, fourth, and fifth graders.
When Leah moved from NJ to Gramercy, she taught a second grade inclusion class in Brooklyn. During this time, she also mentored a new teacher. Furthermore, she spent a portion of her day teaching Fundations, Wilson Language Basics.
During Leah's last two years in the classroom, Leah taught seventh grade reading. After an observer watched her instruct, he described her class as the "Dawer Power Hour."
After working for several years in the classroom, Leah left the classroom so she could devote her time to creating and implementing individually tailored lessons to address students' unique educational needs.
