Why did you decide to become a teacher?
I have always felt that knowledge is to be shared. My appreciation for being Jewish also drives me as a Jewish educator.
What do you love about working for Talmud Torah?
The ability to connect with so many Jewish students throughout the years has been meaningful to me. It is important to teach the next generation of Jews lessons that will foster a life filled with a love and connection to God, Torah, Israel, Community/Peoplehood, and Deeds of Loving Kindness. The access to professional growth has been encouraged and accepted by all stakeholders here at Talmud Torah. I am grateful to all my teachers whom I've learned from and the support of the Talmud Torah of Minneapolis community.
