Coach Asha is a coach at PS 446 in Brooklyn. Coach Asha currently runs an informal Junior Coach program with her 3rd graders. The program is generally for 4th and 5th graders but Coach Asha felt that it was very important and necessary to provide the same leadership opportunities to her K-3 elementary school. Coach Asha has also facilitated a parent night earlier this month which included school staff, parents and students. It was a great night that really brought the community together through play. Shout out to Coach Asha!!!
About Coach Asha
Favorite cheer: “Why I Ate The Pie”
My kids and I like it so much we turned it into a song for the big jump rope section. After every line you yell out a trick.
Ex: “Why I ate the pie, I said, Why I ate the pie”… Criss Cross! (Then that person jumps with criss-crossed legs)
“Why I ate the pie, I said, Why I ate the pie”…One foot! (Then that person jumps on one foot)
Hand clap…eyes closed…eyes open…super fast
Favorite thing about Brooklyn: There’s an Empanada Truck on Atlantic ave (right outside the main train station) where their empanadas are filled with different ingredients. The Chicken & Cheese Empanada is my favorite!
If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?: If I could have any super power I’d pick Teleportation. I have traveled to different countries & islands but I hate flying. If I could just think of a place, snap my fingers, and Voila! I’m there! It would be the coolest thing ever.
