At Home with Us: Help your Child Become more Competent and Confident in Their Language and Literacy Skills

At Home with Us is a new virtual series featuring and led by members of the JCC. Though we can't come together in person, these sessions are designed to strengthen our community ties, and will cover a broad range of topics chosen to highlight the many areas of expertise within our community.

Join literacy experts Donna Sheynfeld and Rachel Yadgard to learn some fun, parent friendly techniques and activities to infuse literacy skill building into your everyday life. Donna, is an early-childhood educator with over 16 years of experience and a diverse background, including positions at The Dalton School and Harlem Children’s Zone. She is currently an Adjunct Professor for Early Childhood Mathematics at Hunter College and is the co-founder of Little Learners NYC, a tutoring company located right here on the UWS.

Donna believes there is no better feeling than teaching a child to achieve something he or she felt impossible. She is a mom of three kids on the Upper West Side and is an active member of the JCC community.

Rachel is an early childhood educator with over 20 years experience. She holds an MS in Early Childhood Education and an MA as a Reading Specialist. She has taught various grades at schools including The Dalton School, The American School in London and currently works at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School. She is passionate about teaching early literacy and enjoys working closely with children, not only to build their confidence in reading, but to also enhance their overall self-esteem. She is a mom of two kids on the UWS and an active member of the JCC community.
