Aimee Ferguson

Aimee Ferguson is currently a third-grade classroom teacher at Jefferson Elementary School. She has taught various grades during her nine years as an educator and her philosophy has remained the same: academic success is achievable when curriculum is differentiated, student confidence is strengthened and learning is fun. She enjoys collaboration with colleagues and families in the community and with educators as far-flung as Taiwan and Japan.

Her research in the 2018 US-Taiwan Teacher Fellows Program focused on traditional Taiwanese medicine and wellness as well as Taiwanese geography.

Tania Riccoboni

Tania Riccoboni has been teaching art in the middle schools of North Rockland CSD for 15 years, and loves the blend of innocence and snark that her students provide as she shows them that yes they CAN draw. She graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a major in Art Education (concentration in photography) and a minor in Italian. She lived in Queens until her family moved just outside of the city when she turned 13. She has a bulldog named Alba that she loves very much, and loves to travel, dance, hike, read, and spend time with friends and family.

Her research in the 2018 US-Taiwan Teacher Fellows Program focused on arts in Taiwan.
