“Everyone at Elms is open to sharing ideas and listening to how other people are running their classes at other schools. It’s helpful because you can immediately try those things in your own classroom.”

As an assistant teacher at a local preschool, Alhia innovates fun ways to introduce children to math, science, literacy, and more.
