Empowering students with language-based learning differences
Krystal Alleyne, elementary teacher, is a graduate of Howard University, where she received her B.S. in Psychology. She recently graduated from George Washington University, where she earned an M.Ed. in Elementary Education. She started her teaching career at age 19 while in college by joining Jumpstart, a program that focuses on making sure preschool students are kindergarten-ready. Shortly after graduating from college, she joined City Year, where she had the rare opportunity to work with 3rd and 5th grade students. Recently while pursuing her Master's, she grasped every chance to work with students in three different grade levels (1st, 3rd, and 5th).
Why I Teach At Siena: because of the opportunity to profoundly impact these students' lives.
