Meet Ms. Curran

August 31, 2022 | Becca Brasser


My name is Mallory Curran. I have been working with Mustard Seed School for four years now as a paraprofessional and also as an Extended Day instructor. I am looking forward to my first year as an assistant teacher in first grade. I graduated from New Jersey City University with a bachelors in  Early Childhood Education and Psychology in 2014. In 2020, I completed my masters in education. In my free time, I enjoy painting and spending as much time with my family as possible. I love being outdoors, especially by the water.



Becca Brasser

Teacher, Grade 1

Becca Brasser has been teaching first grade at Mustard Seed School since 2002. She’s passionate about teaching children to read, write, experiment, and take risks as they explore the world around them. Her own studies (including a Master of Arts degree from New Jersey City University) have given her expertise and experience in the area of literacy education.

Ms. Brasser especially enjoys taking her students on field trips all over the New York Metropolitan area, traveling on foot, subway, bus, commuter train, and ferry. Some favorite trips: the Hudson Hike, the New York Transit Museum, and the Central Park Zoo to study penguins.

Although she lives in the city, Ms. Brasser loves escaping to nature and finding it in her everyday life as well. She loves to explore rivers and lakes, woods and mountains with her husband Matt, their daughter, Annika, and son, Theo.
