6: Ms Fatima Khoogar I am delighted to be a Preschool teacher! I graduated with BS in Economics, but always knew I belonged with children. I immediately began teaching preschoolers and my desire to learn more about my students only grew. I am studying to earn a Master degree in Education from SJSU. The world sometimes is a crazy place, but it gives me peace and happiness to be able to do a job I believe in with all my heart. It is a privilege to work with you and your family and I am committed to making your experiences here truly special. | Ms Remi | "It takes a lot of passion to be able to work with preschoolers. For me, it is such a great challenge because you do not only instill knowledge to them but you also build their character. As you teach them, you also learn to be more patient, compassionate, understanding, and to be firm with them. I just love working with kids....they are so lovable, even if there are times that they don't listen or behave as you expect them to do."

50: Ms Blasita I have been with PHMS since 1997. As a teacher aide I enjoy helping children with any personal needs. These may include using the bathroom, hand-washing, feeding, and changing clothes or diapers or assist in potty training. I also support teachers on daily housekeeping duties, such as Cleaning, disinfecting toys and equipment or cleaning up areas after mealtimes or snacks. I am honored to meet and work with all of your children here in PHMS to supports them in meeting their academic, personal/social goals. Here I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms Margaret for giving me this opportunity to work in such a friendly and academic environment.
