My name is Jahaira Ortiz. I came to this country from Dominican Republic when I was fourteen years old and I have lived in New Jersey since then. I have been working with young children since 2005 and have experienced in third grade, pre-k and preschool education. I believe teaching is an opportunity to inspire all children, to help them believe that all things are possible, and that they can all make a difference in this world.
