What I do
I create a learning environment that motivates teachers to teach, and students to learn and grow.
How I make a difference at YTCTE
By attempting to model the positive attributes I learned from my teachers and mentors, such as respect, caring and a dedication to excellence in all things. I believe that’s helped create an atmosphere throughout the school that reflects those qualities.
My favorite part about what I do
Enabling parents to understand their children and their unique needs and abilities. It’s incredibly rewarding.
My key driver is to be a Marbitz Torah – to bring the beauty and profundity of Hashem’s Torah to my fellow Jews. When the opportunity to lead YTCTE’s early childhood and elementary divisions arose, I joined because I saw the school’s potential to develop into a first rate institution. It’s far exceeded my expectations. I’m so proud of the excellent reputation we’ve built.
