About The Teacher

My name is Gail Schwartz.  I have been teaching for 25 years- preschool 
through the 6th grade.  This is my 13th year at Eagle Ridge Elementary; all 
have been as a First Grade Teacher.  I've been the First Grade Team Leader 
for the past 10 years.  I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary 
Education and my Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Queens College. 
I am endorsed in Gifted Education and I use these skills and strategies with my 
class every day.  I am a firm believer in bringing children to their next level of 
learning while fostering a positive self-image.  The happiness and safety of your 
child is of the utmost importance to me on a daily basis.  As you will see, I LOVE 
children and I LOVE what I do.  When I am not teaching, I love to spend 
time with my family, traveling, at hockey games, and I love 
to walk and be active.  9 years ago we rescued a dog from one of the Broward 
County shelters and we are in love with our pet...he's actually the 
teacher's pet!!!  If I am ever relaxing on the couch you can be assured that 
he is snuggling next to me! I'm looking forward to a happy, rewarding and 
successful school year!
