Get to know us - Shoshie Kupferman

Hi! My name is Shoshie Kupferman and I am one of the special education preschool teachers here at Ruby Bridges.  I am originally from San Francisco and am currently living in Oakland.  I received my undergraduate degree from UC Santa Cruz in Developmental Psychology, and my Infant Mental Health Master’s degree and Early Childhood Special Education credential from Mills College.  I am entering my third year of teaching and am looking forward to sharing my passion and dedication for working with young children!  During the summer I work as an assistant director at a summer camp near Yosemite.  In my free time outside of work I enjoy cooking, spending time with friends and family, traveling, and hiking and camping in beautiful places.  I am looking forward to a wonderful school year ahead filled with many playful learning experiences!
