Mrs. Fran Rubenstein, who has served as a first grade teacher in the Eastchester Schools for over 27 years, will be retiring at the end of June. Mrs. Rubenstein is an extraordinary educator who has had a positive impact on literally hundreds of children within our community. Mrs. Rubenstein is a gifted teacher, a natural leader and an absolute professional in every sense of the word. The students who have been in her classroom have been challenged to think critically, solve problems creatively, and challenge themselves socially, emotionally and academically. At many points during my visits to her classroom, I have been astounded that her six-year-old children are able to display such advanced cognition and learning. Complementing her high academic standards, Fran also exhibits a side that reassures her students that mistakes are natural and are often our best teacher.
In addition to the adoration of her students, and the admiration of the parents who have encountered her, Fran is highly esteemed by her colleagues. There is no question that she has had a positive impact on the way others teach and interact with children in our school.
Congratulations to Mrs. Fran Rubenstein on a distinguished career. We all wish her the very best in her retirement!
