Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Jahaira Ortiz. I've been part of the Jefferson family for seven year. I had worked 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.
