Other Information


Originally from Israel, education and training have been constants in my life. In Israel, I worked for the Israeli airline, El Al, where I was in charge of computer training for the reservation department. During this time, I received a graduate degree in organizational behavior from Tel Aviv University’s Recanati Business School. I moved to the United States after getting married; started a family, and stayed at home to raise our three kids. All three, Avital, Yael and Eran are graduates of CESJDS.

When my youngest was in kindergarten I started volunteering in the classroom, and realized that I loved working with the kids and teaching them Hebrew. It was then that I decided to change careers and become a teacher. After earning a Masters in Jewish Education, I started teaching my own first grade class. I love teaching young kids, and seeing how much they can learn in a very short time. I enjoy seeing their curiosity and enthusiasm when they learn a new song, do a computer project or learn the weekly Parasha.I also like getting involved in all aspects of the school life.

I am now the Judaic Studies and Hebrew Language Coordinator at the Lower School. I am also a certified teacher mentor, working with new teachers to help them in all aspects of their teaching.
