Brief Biography: Before becoming a teacher, Ms. Osif spent fifteen years in the business world. In the three years before coming to PALCS, she taught in the Jersey City Public Schools. She plans eventually to become an administrator, preferably in the cyber setting.
One of the reasons Ms. Osif enjoys teaching in the cyber environment is because it enables her to focus on individual students. She feels that her own struggles in high school were due to the lack of attention she received from teachers. “Due to the size of my class, I couldn’t get the attention I needed. When I decided to become a math teacher, I promised myself that I would provide as much individual attention as I could to my students. You will find me ready and willing to provide homework help at open and private chat sessions.”
