Meet the kindergarten teacher:
Mrs. Raina Grady obtained the Certificate of Child Care and Special Education in Hong Kong. She moved to the United States and graduated from Muskingum College in 1993. She became the kindergarten teacher at Children's Academy in 1995. Each year Raina takes the opportunity of going to workshops, attending teacher's conferences, or taking classes at college in order to keep up to speed on learning new teaching skills. Raina says that she enjoys working at Children's Academy and with the children. "I've always tried different ways to encourage the little ones to learn. It always amazes me, as a teacher, how the students progress through out the year. My goal is to bring out the best of each student and help each one of them to believe on themselves."
