I started out majoring in psychology and accident started teaching, and I loved it! So I dropped everything, changed my major, and the rest is history. The truth is, it’s a privilege to teach. 

Being a Builder of Jewish education means you are ensuring the continuity of the Jewish future. There’s no other item that can do that than education. I see myself as part of an unbroken chain. We take what we’ve been given and pass it on to the next generation. And hope that they’ll do the same when their time comes.

I think being a Builder of Jewish education is about laying the foundation for others to build on top of. I love the work that I get to do here, working with other educators to provide support, and working with teens.

What is unique about working with teens is that they’re at a stage where they’re trying to figure out who they want to be in the world, how they matter. They’re asking big questions and grappling with big ideas.
