Congratulations to Teacher of the Year: Alyssa Krimsky!

DREAM’s Teacher of the Year award recognizes an exceptionally dedicated and impactful teacher who inspires students, families, fellow teachers and the entire DREAM community. DREAM is thrilled to announce, the 2018 Teacher of the Year award goes to Alyssa Krimsky!

Alyssa Krimsky has taught fourth grade at DREAM for four years. In that time, she has built a calm and welcoming classroom environment. She takes care to make learning fun for every student in her class while teaching a rigorous curriculum. Alyssa has helped all her students, particularly her students with special needs, make tremendous gains in both Math and English Language Arts. In 2017, the fourth grade had a 14% increase in English Language Arts proficiency and a 21% increase in Math proficiency. She’s also tirelessly supported her colleagues, particularly by helping to implement math standards and co-piloting new professional development initiatives.

We’re proud to celebrate the success of our teachers. Congrats Alyssa!
