I didn’t become an educator, I was born one. When I was doing student teaching the principal told my parents “she is a born teacher.” My motivation for being an educator stems from my core being!
“A Builder must understand how Judaism and Jewish values make a vital contribution to who we are as Americans…”

I think what is most important to me is making sure that Jewish education is available to any family who wants it. Whether it’s religious school, day school, summer camp, or something else, it’s all about making sure we continue to offer Jewish kids great experiences in Jewish environments. That’s how they’ll become active participants in Jewish life as adults.
