Southshire Community School has welcomed Judith Trier as its newest full-time teacher.
Trier earned her Masters degree from Sage Graduate School in childhood education, and undergraduate degrees from SUNY Albany (Social Studies) and Maria College (Applied Science). She also holds a New York State Certification in Childhood Education (Grades 1-6).
Trier served as a Lead Teacher, Curriculum Developer, and Instructional Designer at the KNOX School in Seoul, South Korea as well as a private teacher in the United States.
For the past five years she has been an elementary teacher at Tariz Bin Ziad, part of the Abu Dhabi Educational Council.
“We’re very excited to have Judy join the teaching staff,” says school founder Ann Fitzgerald. “We anticipate her exposure to different approaches to teaching will enrich the classroom in many ways. Plus, her understanding of different cultures will provide for many engaging discussions and lessons.”
