My name is Ashanti Givens. I grew up in Alachua FL, and still, reside here. I have been working with children for the past 7 years. This is my third School year working at B’nai Israel Community Day School, and my first year as the lead in the younger One year old class. Teaching children is a true passion of mine. One of my strengths as an educator is encouraging my co-workers here at B’nai and always pushing my students to realize their full potential. My favorite things to do in my spare time are singing, shopping, and spending time with family and friends. I love working with children and learning new things every day from them. I’m so excited to meet your children and enjoy such a fantastic school year, and all the new adventures it shall bring.
