My commitment to my students is to be the teacher I never had. I will never stop trying to make learning fun and meaningful. I look forward to teaching your children every day. Welcome to a wonderful and exciting new year at Ben Gamla. Second Grade is an excellent transition year for the children. I teach core academics as well as independence. Your children will become more confident learners and enjoy school.
