Biography

Greetings!  My name is Aysha Downey and this will be my fourth year here at Global Leadership Academy.  I am thrilled to be teaching second grade again this year!  As a graduate of Temple University, I have obtained my B.S. in Early Childhood Education (prek-4).  I'm currently working on my Masters in Reading at Eastern University. Throughout the years, I have worked with all groups of children ranging from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade.  It has been a passion of mine to be a teacher and now that the time has come, I couldn't be more ecstatic!
Growing up in Philadelphia afforded me the opportunity to really appreciate education.  At a young age, I decided that I wanted to be a teacher; but not just any teacher.  I wanted to be a teacher who cared about her students, was passionate about the subject matter, and who instilled in her scholars leadership qualities.  As the year progresses, my goal is not only to meet these requirements, but ultimately to instill the love of learning into each and every one of my scholars.
