Hello! My name is Mrs. Amal Elsirty and I am a preschool teacher at Ignacio Cruz. This is my first year at the school, but I have been teaching for the past 15 years. I received my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Psychology from William Paterson University in New Jersey. In addition to teaching, I am also a wife and mother to three children. In my spare time, I love being a cat mom to my two adorable kittens, Luca and Luna.
I believe that children learn best through love and memorable experiences. This includes activities such as art, music, movement, technology, and socializing with others. Establishing trust and creating a safe, loving environment is crucial in helping children explore their imagination and grow. I strive to provide a classroom where my students feel loved, safe, and comfortable, as I believe the early years of learning are the foundation for future success.
