Hello! My name is Alley O'Hara and welcome to my website. I am so delighted to have your child in my classroom for this 2020-2021 school year! I anticipate an amazing year. This is my ninth year teaching in the Demarest School District. I graduated from SUNY Oneonta with majors in Early Childhood Education and Childhood Education. I also completed my Master's Degree for Educational Leadership and Instruction through the College of New Jersey and got my Master's plus 32 credits from Loyola University.
I wanted to be a teacher from a very early age as I am passionate about young children and helping them to grow and develop into healthy, happy and successful people. My philosophy of learning is that each child is unique and learns in his or her own way. I will encourage every child to discover their individuality and work with them to maximize their potential. I believe in incorporating many hands-on experiences for the children and making learning fun and interactive. This is going to be a fun–filled, educational year!
