Franceen Retik, Akiva Teacher

franceen-in-classI’ve been at Akiva for over 25 years now and I’ve seen the school flourish, growing from a single stream to a dual stream school with 2 classes per grade… One thing that has always remained the same is our focus on providing a child-centered education where the student is in the middle of all that we do… Teaching is a passion for me. It’s a labour of love and I couldn’t see myself doing anything else other than working with children… I get such pleasure from teaching the children of past Akiva graduates that I also taught many years ago.”
