Dear Little Star Families,

Starting on Monday, we will have an intern teacher, Najoua Kilaouy, from Kingsborough Community College working in the Little Stars Room this semester on Monday and Friday mornings.


Najoua is taking Professor Glen Moller’s class “Supervised Educational Experience in Education II” at Kingsborough and working here for her practicum. Not coincidentally, Glen Moller’s first early childhood teaching experience was right here at the Collective, back in the 1970s. Glen is thrilled to have his students placed here (he has two other students interning in the Rainbow Room) as he sees the Collective as a paragon of early childhood education and the place that formed the core of his teaching philosophy and approach.

Please be sure to welcome Najoua!
