Our Staff

Teaching is a mission, a valued and time-honored Jewish tradition. The adults in our school – the teachers, administrators, rabbis and custodians – recognize that they are role models, and that being around impressionable children is a privilege and responsibility.  

While each of our teachers has a unique talent box, they share their view of children as innately competent beings, able to master self-regulation and to build their own knowledge. They create classroom communities where each child’s voice is honored.

 

In the Reggio Emilia approach, the teacher herself is a learner – alongside the children – open to new thoughts and ideas. Likewise, in Hebrew, the term for scholar is “Talmid Chacham” – a wise student! We are committed to strengthening and enriching our knowledge of young children by listening carefully to them, and by continuing our own education.
