Ndayishimiye Florence

Grade 5 Homeroom 502 and 5th grade Science and Social Studies Email: 

Hello!

My name is Ndayishimiye Florence. I am Burundian and was born in Camp Muyovozi in Tanzania. I left Tanzania with my whole family at the age of 9 and came here to Buffalo, NY.  I have been living here ever since 2008, I attended elementary school, high school, and college here in Buffalo, NY. I graduated from ECC with an Associate in Arts and then transferred to Buffalo State College, where I graduated with a Bachelor degree in Elementary Education. Being an educator has always been a goal of mine, ever since I was a little girl. My father was an educator back in Tanzania and that played a part in deciding my goals. I have also always enjoyed sharing my knowledge with others; I would teach our traditional dances to the kids in my neighborhood back in Tanzania and in High school I would help my friends out with their school work. They also encouraged me to pursue a career in education and now here I am. 

I am grateful and excited to have the opportunity to teach as I have always wanted. This last school year I taught Kindergarten and now I'll be teaching 5th grade. I am very excited for this new adventure that I’ll be taking and I can’t wait to thrive along with my students. I know we’re going to have a blast! GO 5TH GRADE!!
