My name is Desirae Ciaffone. I was raised in Westchester County and graduated from Yorktown High School. I attended Pace University and received my degree in Elementary Education, as well as English to Speakers of other Languages. I am currently an E.N.L. (English as a New Language) teacher at Woodside Elementary School. I service students in both Kindergarten and first grade throughout the building. I strive to be culturally competent in order to embrace the diversity in my classroom. By understanding various cultures, traditions, and beliefs, I can enhance student learning and provide opportunities for student connections, understanding, and progress.
