Nisha enjoys teaching kids of all ages. Her greatest joy is to watch her students grow into kind, strong individuals who act from integrity who are able to effectively communicate and articulate his or her opinion or idea in a mature way.
“My goal as a Teacher and Administrator is to support the creations of a learning environment that allows every child to leave Homestead confident enough to initiate conversations with their teachers, to speak up for themselves and their peers when needed, and to do it in a kind, compassionate, and respectful way, so they can be heard. I love hearing a young person make a kind or inclusive choice when they think nobody else is looking, watching their faces light up when they care for the animals, work with the younger students at the school, or calculate and realize how much money they earned for a cause of their choice. It feels so good to be able to give them multiple opportunities to make a difference in their world, allowing them to experience their own personal power/ability.”
