Hara is excited to teach at JCC Manhattan! After spending five years at a preschool in Brooklyn Heights, this is her first year as a co–head teacher at the JCC in Classroom 6. Hara has a dual master’s degree in general and special education from Bank Street College of Education, and a bachelor’s degree in gender studies from NYU. Hara has always enjoyed working with children of all ages, but finds something truly magical about being with children in their preschool years. She loves learning and growing with the children in her classroom throughout the year!
