Lizzy Tepper 

Lizzy joined the Saul and Carole Zabar Nursery School as a co-head teacher in 2017. Prior to joining the nursery school, Lizzy taught preschoolers with special needs at the Child Development Center and the New York Center for Child Development.

Lizzy is a born and bred New Yorker. She lives on the Upper West Side with her husband, only 30 blocks from where she was raised. Lizzy attended New York University and received a B.A. in psychology. After assistant teaching for a few years, Lizzy decided to go back to school and complete her master's degree in early childhood general and special education at Bank Street College of Education. 

Lizzy is passionate about teaching, and strives to provide engaging and exploratory learning experiences that elicit creative thinking and a love of learning in every child. Lizzy is incredibly excited to work closely with Elyssa and Sarah this year, and to partner with all of the families in Classroom 4.
