My name is Regina Ortiz! I am from Nyack, New York. I am married with 2 boys, Javier and Johan; and of course our black lab Suzi. My family and I have been here since June of 2017, due to my husband being stationed here. My favorite color is black, I LOVE to travel and explore new places. I love being silly with family, friends and my students. I am learning how to be in the now and enjoy the moments we have. I have my bachelor's degree in Applied Behavior Analysis and master's degree the the Art of Teaching, with a certification in Special Education. I started out at Hunters Creek as an IA in the EC Adaptive and General Seperate setting classrooms in the 2017-2018 school year; while I was working on my master's degree. I came back to Hunters Creek after graduating and worked as the Resource teacher and Gen. Ed seperate setting teacher in the 2018-2019 school year. I was also a kindergaten teacher at HCE and enjoyed every moment. Now I am going VIRTUAL!!! I can not wait to see what thihs journey has in store for me and the famlies of OVS. I became a teacher because I believe all children regradless of their econmic status, race, gender,and/or ability, all deserve an equity and great quality of teaching. I will always try my best to give each student the love they need, and all children deserve.
