Ms. Brooke Robinson

Brooke Robinson is currently our Grade Leader in Second Grade. She joined the East Elmhurst Community School family our opening year in 2013. Since joining us, she has taught Kindergarten ICT, First Grade, and looped with her students to second grade. She has her Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and Elementary Education, as well as her Masters Degree in Literacy. Ms. Robinson strongly believes that the best teachers show you where to look, but do not tell you what to see. She see's the importance in hands on discovery in the classroom to help our students become the very best independent learners that they can be. Ms. Robinson has implemented flexible seating in her classroom this year to ensure that all students are comfortable and focused while learning! Having a fun, exciting, safe, and supportive classroom is incredibly important to Ms.Robinson, as she uses humour and love to connect with her students.

Jessica Sibucao

I received my B.A. major in Early Childhood Education from University of Santo Tomas, Philippines and my M.S.Ed in General and Special Education in Early Childhood from Touro College.

I taught as a K-6 general education teacher in Philippines for two years and as a Universal Pre-Kindergarten teacher in Richmond Hill, Queens for four years.

I strongly believe in the importance of teacher encouragement and motivation for students. I aim to encourage students while teaching them to be intrinsically motivated by offering challenging yet fun and supportive lessons and activities. Having a safe, fun and supportive class is important for me that is why I believe in using preventive and supportive behavior strategies more than corrective. I achieve this through providing engaging lessons and by establishing clear expectations.

My name is Yocely Nava. I attended Queens College for both my undergraduate and graduate studies. I have a masters in elementary education with a bilingual extension. Becoming a teacher has always been my greatest goal. It was in my fifth grade classroom that I knew teaching would be my passion. I always said I wanted to teach children to love learning.
Growing up, I surrounded myself with children of various ages to help and guide them in any way. I have always enjoyed working with children. Also being a witness to how much they can learn and change throughout time.The greatest thing about education is that children teach us countless lessons everyday. After two years of experience as a pre-K teacher in a private school, I am looking forward to teaching and learning new things at P.S. 329.  I will encourage my students to share their unique ideas in order to learn from one another and to work hard to achieve their goals.
