About Me


Hi! I am Mrs. Yafaie! I am so excited to be your child’s second grade teacher for the 2018-2019 school year! This will be my sixth year of teaching.  I taught computers for two years and then first grade for two and a half years. Last year I taught third grade. I am looking forward to making this school year the best one yet!




I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Pace University in Pleasantville, NY. I recently graduated with a Master’s of Arts in Teaching from NEIU in Chicago and became licensed to teach elementary grades as well as middle school math.
