In Ms. Persaud's own words...


I decided to get into teaching after working in investment banking for 21 years. The company I worked for relocated to another state and I did not want to leave New York City. I believe that being a Special Education teacher was the best fit for me because of my skill sets. I am a 'people's person', but most importantly, this is where I am needed most. I regularly stay after school to assist students with their assignments and practice study skills.
