Mr. Jonathan K.

Bachelor in Archaeology From Yale · specializes in College App Essays · 41-50 years old male

"I believe in Project Zero's emphasis on the theory of constructivism. My job as a teacher is to scaffold experiences for my students in such a way that they can reach for their goals themselves, and strengthen their own skills. I can then gradually take away the scaffolding so each student can grow and become independent."
