Nina Uy
Nina Uy was born, raised and educated in Queens and has dedicated her life to shaping young minds and inspiring them to strive for more. This precept is carried throughout her classroom and how Nina lives her own life. Nina is an adventurer, traveler and an avid dreamer. As a living and breathing testament to the power of a strong public school education, Nina has decided to show her gratitude by giving back to the community that has given her so much. Nina studied and graduated from New York University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education and received a Master’s of Arts at Teachers College at Columbia University. She holds a dual-certification in elementary and special education K-6 with a concentration in English. Prior to coming to P.S. 527, Nina has invested her talent and energy into the young learners at P.S./I.S. 49 in Middle Village, Queens, a literacy based school with a special focus on art and music. Nina has been part of both 4th grade and 5th grade education teams as a special education teacher. Art and music are the pillars of Nina’s educational beliefs and are weaved into her lessons. Nina has a strong belief that reading and writing are enhanced through dramatic play and creative arts and are vital for all children’s development. The importance of play and living an active lifestyle are transparent when you meet Nina. At P.S./I.S. 49 she founded the Lightning Bolts, the school’s first running club in conjunction with the New York Road Runners Program. Nina has also received her Level I Teacher Training at Little Flower Yoga and integrates breathing practices and mindfulness activities in both running and her classroom. Nina’s classroom cultivates robust minds, critical thinkers and active imaginations. Her students are encouraged to be independent and confident in their own abilities. Her own penchant for writing and love for new discoveries is infused in her classroom and she encourages her students to take the same attitude in their own work. Thoughtful and mindful risk-taking as well as kindness is always championed in Nina’s room. A passion for lifelong learning and seeking challenges has led Nina to the doorsteps of P.S. 527 last year. She is thrilled and blessed to be a founding fifth grade teacher and looks forward to bringing her enthusiasm for learning to the P.S. 527 community for her second year here.
