Hello new and returning Kentwood families. My name is Elise Steinberg and it is my privilege to begin my fourth year here at Kentwood Prep Academy. For those of you who do not know me, I have been teaching for almost 20 years, both in public schools and the private sector. I am so happy to have found my way to this amazing school. Teaching was not my first career, however. Originally, I was in retail, managing several large chains and becoming a buyer. One day, as I packed my brief case and put on my heels, I asked myself, "Is this it?" My answer was a very obvious . . . "NO!" I went back to school and earned my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Exceptional Education. Now, as I put on my comfortable shoes and pack my "Teacher Bag", I can ask myself the same question: I like my answer now much better: This is definitely "it" for me. I have taught literally every grade, from K - 12. Someone recently asked me which was my favorite grade to teach. I had to think about it for a few minutes, and honestly it changes from year to year. Whatever grade I happen to be teaching always seems to end up being my current favorite. I grew up in the North: Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, but I have been here in South Florida for over 30 years. I have been married for 20 years, have 2 boys, 15 and almost 18 years old, and am an avid animal lover! The one thing that I would most like for you to know about me and the time that your child spends with me is that, in addition to providing the best academic and social education that I can for your child, I will always treat your child in the manner that I am hoping some teacher out there is treating my own child. I'm looking forward to another great year.
