Shira Schwab

Shira Schwab, associate teacher, joined the teaching staff in 2016, but her first exposure to our nursery school was as a student teacher in the fall of 2012, when she assisted in a 2s classroom as part of her BA coursework in early childhood education. Since then, Shira has been teaching 3s and kindergarten at Jewish day schools in the metropolitan area while also attending graduate school. In spring 2016, Shira graduated from Fordham University with her master’s of science in early childhood special education. Shira is passionate about connecting with children to give them confidence and pride in their work; in particular, she is drawn to shy or introverted children and sees the role of the teacher as helping them find their voice and footing in the social world of the classroom.
