Ms. Tetyana Lapson

I grew up in Ukraine and came to the United States as an exchange student in high school. I had amazing teachers who helped me to master English. I fell in love with American culture and people and was inspired to become a teacher too. I received my Master's Degree in International Education from New York University. I taught English as a Second Language in Ukraine, North Carolina, New York City and Westchester. Throughout my career I have taught Kindergarten, second grade, third grade and even adults! 

I believe that learning a new language opens a whole new world of friendships and opportunities. I love working with families from all over the world and I am excited to be your child's English as a New Language (ENL) teacher this year. Together we will work on helping your child to become proficient when communicating and learning in English.

I also hope to be a support for you as a parent. Please feel free to reach out if you need help with anything school related. I am here for you!
