Odette Botelho

Classroom B

Odette was raised in Westport, Massachusetts. Her family is originally from the Azores, which are nine Portuguese islands 900 miles off the coast of Portugal. Odette received her BA in Early Childhood Education and Sociology from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. She also holds an MA in Early Childhood Education from Hunter College. She is New York State certified and licensed to teach from birth to sixth grade. Odette attended a weeklong conference in Reggio Emilia, Italy to learn about the early childhood schools and teaching methods in the area. Odette completed her yoga training for children through Karma Kids and is certified to teach yoga to ages 1-18. After eight years at WMS, she was given the opportunity to take a sabbatical during which she traveled to the Azores and Portugal. Odette is looking forward to beginning her 12th year at WMS.
