I would like to introduce myself as Galileo’s Montessori Academy new Assistant Teacher. My name is Joy and I am currently a Senior at the University of South Florida pursuing a degree in Criminology. I believe that education is key to success in all areas of life and wanted to apply that in my position at Galileo Montessori Academy. My main goal in being an Assistant Teacher is to provide a safe and knowledgeable environment for your child. With that being said, I’ve always had a passion for teaching and learning the dynamics in how to become a Teacher myself. Of course I have other things I am passionate about such as: volunteering at Trinity Cafe to feed the homeless, serving at church on the weekends, participating in community events and so much more. I aim to remain productive in things that will give me a new perspective on life.
