I am Nardia Rochester a teacher from Jamaica who have been teaching for the past 11 years. I am excited about teaching here at River Oaks Elementary School. I believe every child has potential and should not enter and leave any classroom without learning. I believe that each child is a unique individual and if they are given a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially they will learn. It is my aim as a teacher to help students achieve their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is conducive to learning.
