Early Childhood Teaching Assistant


Hartwick College
BA in Art History

This will be Ms. Ali’s fifth year teaching at Congressional and her first leading in the Fireflies Classroom. Previously, Ali worked as the Butterflies lead teacher for several years and is excited for this new endeavor. Ms. Ali loves the close bonds she forms with children and families and the tight knit community at Congressional. When not at school, Ms. Ali can be found enjoying a good book, going for a run, or enjoying all of the great museums and restaurants the DC area has to offer.


“I find working with young children endlessly rewarding. From sharing in their joy of a new discovery to watching them become more independent and confident in their abilities, to the smiles I receive when I walk into the classroom each day, I love being a part of their development and their world.”
