My name is Marissa McGuire and the 2019-2020 school year will be my third year teaching preschool, and my first year as a lead teacher here at B’nai Israel Community Day School! I grew up in Buffalo, New York where I spent 7 years as an assistant dance teacher to children ages 2 to 14 years old. I decided to move to Gainesville in August of 2018. When I’m not working, I’m usually either crafting or spending time outdoors (camping is my favorite way to spend my time, but being new to Gainesville, I’m in search of good places to camp, so any suggestions would be much appreciated!).
My biggest strengths when it comes to teaching are making sure every child feels heard and helping children to understand and properly deal with their emotions. I enjoy finding creative ways for my students to explore the world around them, therefor sensory activities, crafting and music will be staples here in the Tzhov classroom!
I am so excited to get to know you and your children this year!
