For as long as Sage Asnas can remember, she has always wanted to be a teacher and learning specialist. She graduated from SUNY Buffalo with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences and a concentration in Education. Sage then completed her Master’s degree in childhood general and special education at Hunter College as well as an advanced certificate in Gifted and Talented Education. While in graduate school at Hunter College, Sage was an Assistant Teacher at PS6 in Manhattan, where she developed a passion for a full inclusion model. She was also an Assistant Teacher at the Dalton Summer Camp. Upon completing her Master’s degree, Sage set out looking for her dream position: an inclusion ICT classroom. She was beyond thrilled when she landed a job at Brooklyn Arbor Elementary School (PS414) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Sage has been teaching 3rd grade ICT since September 2013, and she is proud to say that she truly loves what she does.
Sage believes that all children are unique in the way they think, grow, learn and explore. With the rigorous standards for schoolchildren today, Sage understands the importance of finding a way into the curriculum both as a classroom teacher and private tutor. In working with a wide range of students, Sage has been able to tailor instruction, materials, and supports in order to meet these diverse needs. Whether working with an individual, a small group, or a whole class, making real-world connections and making learning meaningful is a priority to her. Through exploration, discovery and practice, students will acquire the knowledge needed to forge connections, think critically, and foster the skills that lead to a healthy and fulfilling life.
In Sage’s free time she enjoys reading, art, traveling, hiking, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
