Anna Betina leads the Encore program for Primary students who begin the school year as 3-year-olds and no longer nap. 3-year-old students who stay for the academic day (until 3 p.m.) have lunch in their home classroom, and then either take a nap or join the Encore group with Anna. Anna supported the napping students and the CASA program in the 2017-18 school year, and was an assistant faculty in the Primary Al Fresco Summer Program in 2018. She is fluent in Ukranian, her native language, English, Russian, and Bulgarian. She has spent her career researching child development, working with children, and volunteering her time with charity organizations focused on children’s welfare. Anna’s daughter is enrolled in the All-Day Toddler classroom.
