My name is Ivana Ng, and it is a pleasure to be teaching the Gifted & Talented population. I received my B.A. in Psychology and Elementary Education, my M.A. in Applied Linguistics, and my Gifted Education Advanced Graduate Certificate from CUNY Queens College, Teachers College Columbia University, and SUNY University at Buffalo, respectively.
I love playing and watching sports. I played volleyball for the NCAA in college. If you go to Applebee's (Fresh Meadows location), you might be able to find me on the wall! Nowadays, I run. You might even be able to catch me running after school some days. If you do, make sure you stop to say hello!
I started my journey at P.S. 214 8 years ago - as a student teacher! It has been an incredible experience working here, being able to do something I'm passionate about every day.
I truly believe all children have something special about them that will always make them shine. Every child needs the opportunity to grow academically, emotionally, physically, cognitively and socially, and it is my duty to provide each child with an environment that is supportive of all their needs. Each child is like a note on a musical staff, when they all come together, they make a lovely piece of music. I am so excited to be joining the 4th grade team this year, and am looking forward to another year of learning, fun, and adventures!
