Welcome to Mr. Joey & Ms. Robeena’s Class Webpage!
About Your Child’s Teachers
My name is Joseph Ortega but I ask for students and parents to call me Mr. Joey. This is my second year teaching at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Academy but I have been working with children for eight years. I hold St. Elizabeth Catholic Academy dear to me because I attended this school from Pre-K to 8th Grade. I enjoy working with children and aspire to assist your child in their first steps in their educational career. I have a Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts and I am currently working towards my Masters in Early Childhood Education. With my knowledge of the arts, I am able to incorporate live music and performances, which enhances their social and emotional behavior while they are learning. I am a firm believer that children learn through play and cooperative experiences. I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his/her full potential.
Hello, my name is Robeena Khan but you can call me Ms.Robeena. I have been working at St. Elizabeth for four years and I very much enjoy working with children. Children are innocent, full of wonder, and can be extremely funny and I am happy to teach alongside Mr. Joey. I too have a connection with St. Elizabeth Catholic Academy because my children attended this Pre-K for All Program and are currently attending the Academy across the street.
I believe that communication is key to a great parent-teacher relationship. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at my email at JOrtega@stelizabethca.org. A monthly newsletter is sent out every month to update you on what we will be doing in class as well as events that will be coming up during the school year. If you need to contact me IMMEDIATELY, as in during school hours, please feel free to call the school office at 718-843-0914.
