My name is Rachel Shoichet, I am excited to join the P.S.349 community and currently live in Mineola I have my NYS professional teaching certification in childhood education, as well as my certificate in special education. This is my first year teaching first grade here at P.S. 349. Prior to working at P.S.349, I taught kindergarten for two years and first grade for three years in Brooklyn. Additionally, I spent one year teaching second and third grade science in Harlem. I am thrilled to work with your children and watch them bloom into readers, writers, mathematicians, and great thinkers!
