Miss Chaya Rivky Horowitz

Kindergarten Teacher
“There is no greater joy than seeing my students’ faces when they ‘get it’ or start reading. I love seeing kids proud of themselves when they accomplish a goal or recognize improvement with their learning. Their smiling face is the reward that keeps me going!”

Kindergarten is the start of an exciting learning journey. My Kindergarten classroom offers a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment for all children. I find great joy in nurturing the growth and development of young children by both embracing and encouraging a child’s innate sense of wonder, enthusiasm, and creativity. 

My goal is to encourage students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and creative problem solvers. I strive to create an atmosphere where students feel comfortable to take academic risks and embrace the process of learning.

I work closely with each student to make sure that my students have the best opportunity to succeed, not only in my classroom but in everything they set their mind to.  As I always say “If there’s a will there’s a way!”
