Jane Moskowitz is a Head Teacher in the Silver Cluster at Gaynor, but her career path started with psychology and neuroscience rather than education. We sat down with Jane for the latest installment in our “Five Questions With…” series to learn more about her favorite aspect of being a teacher as well as her non-profit, Cunucu Dog Rescue.
This week, EC and Lower School students participated in a multisensory storytelling experience. Parents’ Association Book Fair Chairs Kathy Yang and Nina Norwood invited award-winning author and illustrator Kathryn Otoshi to speak with students. Otoshi brought colors and numbers to life with lively readings of her books One, Zero, and Two.
The fall season is winding down this week after a season’s worth of growth and teambuilding among our Gaynor athletes. The volleyball team finished in sixth place, and soccer finished in fifth place in the American International Private School League (AIPSL).
Last week, after studying the role of firefighters in the community, students in the Pink Cluster brought all of their knowledge (and imagination) together as they spent time “trying out” to become firefighters themselves.
This week, students in the Willow Room became pumpkin experts! Students used their five senses to explore the inside and outside of a pumpkin, a very concrete example of Gaynor’s multisensory approach to learning.
