Meet Our Teacher: Ali Yaker
I believe in supporting the whole child and strive to discover the unique gifts that each child and each family bring. While home with my children for the past 10 years, I have had many opportunities to work and volunteer in their preschools and elementary school, and eventually substitute taught at local Jewish and secular preschools.
