About the Teacher
Name: Rina Mamdouh
Grade: 2nd Grade CTT
I received a Bachelor degree in political science and global studies from Stony Brook University. I spent a lot of time traveling and volunteering during college. After college, I worked in a civil litigation firm for two years. Following that, I began substitute teaching in New York City. Two years ago I began pursuing a Master degree in Special Education with a concentration in learning disabilities.
Some of my hobbies include reading, traveling, ice-skating and skiing. I prefer warm weather and love to go to the beach, but I don't know how to swim. Many of my family members live in Egypt so it is where I prefer to spend most of my summers.
I've been teaching at a charter school for two years. I've worked with kindergarten, first and second grades. Last year, I taught guided reading and social studies to second graders. This year, I will be the special education teacher in a CTT classroom. My mission is to build a student-centered classroom where students feel ownership of their learning and environment.
