To get us started, we recently sat down with co-director, Laura Lazarus, and asked her to answer a few questions for us. Here's what she had to say:
How long have you been a Kindergarten teacher?
I've worked at The Town School as a Kindergarten teacher for 9 years! My first class graduates 8th grade this year and I can't believe it. Bring on the tissues at graduation!
Wow! Nine years is a long time. What do you love about working with young children?
How long do I have to answer the question? I love how young children bring an honest curiosity to school every day, love to see children have "ah-ha" moments when they discover something new, and love to be able to sing and dance every day at my job.
What do you love about camp?
I grew up going to day camp and sleep away camp, and then I worked at SummerSault before I started working at Town. I love how camp is another community where kids have fun and get to experience lots of activities. I still talk to my camp friends!
What is something we might not know about you?
I love to do anything active, especially outside! I have run 2 marathons and completed 5 triathlons (including the NYC Tri 2 times). I'm sure I'll jump into the pool with the kids this summer!
Stay tuned for more...
