Our New Intern in PreK!

We are so pleased that our kehillah will be welcoming a student from the MET High School in Providence (http://metcenter.org) to our classroom. Kiara will be joining us on Wednesdays and Fridays; she has chosen our PreK for her internship and Andrea will be mentoring her. Kiara is interested in how children learn about emotional awareness and self-regulation. Kiara joined us today for a few hours, and her gentle spirit, authentic engagement with children, and beautiful smile captivated us all! Within a few minutes, we were holding her hands, showing her around the room, and then leading her outside where she played tag with us. We are all so happy she will be part of our community. We asked Kiara to write a paragraph introducing herself to our community:

“My name is Kiara. I am a tenth grader at the Met High School. My birthday is June 7th. I am 15 years old. My favorite color is purple. I am an only girl and I have four brothers. I love taking pictures and although I am not the best swimmer, I love swimming. I love reading and listening to music.   I have a nephew who is 1 and I absolutely love babysitting. I also love spending time with my family. I used to have a dog named Tuesday. She was a poodle mixed with a hotdog. I gave her away about a year ago. I am getting a new dog that I want to name Chuchi. When I grow up I want to work with kids, because I love kids. Another career I am looking into is being a veterinarian because I have always had a love for animals and it is just something I am extremely passionate about.”
