Lara Zises started teaching in the nursery school as a co-head teacher in our 2s program in 2016. She spent the previous seven years teaching in the nursery school at the Jewish Community Project in Tribeca, where she was most recently a head teacher in a 3s classroom. Lara’s strengths are in building relationships with parents and families and in earning trust from the children. She believes that when this collaboration is successful, it’s possible to have a significant impact on both the child and the community as a whole. Lara graduated with a master’s degree in early childhood education from Metropolitan College of New York.
