Other Information

I have had the pleasure of working with many age groups from Geriatric to Adult, then to Adolescents and then Elementary School age over the course of my 32
year career in Social Work, Guidance Counseling and now, in Educational Administration. I love working, for 20 years now, in the school that I attended and the school I chose to educate my two children. The community at CESJDS is a very special and strong place to educate and enrich our children. I see how the love of learning of Torah, Israel, and Secular studies is instilled with a lens of ethical and critical thinking and accented with joy and fun. I observe the development of our students' concern for the rights of all people and their appreciation for the privilege of living in a free and lawful society. These critical and integrated parts of our work at CESJDS are evident to me every day and I feel fortunate to work here.
