Meet Newell

  • Occupational Therapist
  • Speaks English and Spanish

Hi! My name is Newell Zelarayan and my passion is children! I recently graduated from Columbia University with a Master's degree in Occupational Therapy! However, before discovering the wonderful field of OT I was an assistant teacher for public and private schools around Brooklyn, NY and New York, New York (mainly in the Windsor Terrace/Park Slope areas). My experience is primarily working with children ages 3-6. I love babysitting/working with children because I understand the importance of child development through play! It always amazes me all the things children learn from just playing. Play guides children to learn about their environment, people and themselves. For children play is everything! For me play is something we should all do more often, even as adults!
