About the Director

A little more than three years ago, The One School at Temple Beth Am was highly recommended to me as an outstanding early childhood program with which to seek employment. I was instantly drawn to an engaging children’s Friday Morning Shabbat Service, and I have attended The One School’s Morning Shabbat Service at Temple Beth Am ever since. My professional and personal requirement of seeking only quality early childhood education settings inspired me to continue my educational career at The One School at Temple Beth Am.

The beginning of my teaching and administrative experience began at the Jewish Community Center, serving for 14 years in the capacity of an Early Childhood Teacher, and thereafter, as the Infant Toddler Program Coordinator for the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County. I have been professionally dedicated to both early childhood and elementary educational school programs. My career has included preschool and elementary teaching, preschool and elementary After School Care Administration, several Early Childhood Director positions, as well as the role of an Assistant Elementary Principal.

It was my sincere pleasure and honor to accept the leadership role of The One School’s Early Childhood Director in 2018. I am blessed to continue to embrace such an exceptional preschool program alongside an incredibly strong teaching and administrative staff. I also look forward to the opportunity of collaborating with my Temple Beth Am colleagues and lay board members.

I am very fortunate to have already had the pleasure of sharing home-school relationships with so many of The One School families. Our early childhood program is more than just a preschool; it’s a community of wonderful families and educators united in focusing on the best interests of our children. I look forward to establishing relationships with all the children and families attending The One School this summer and during the 2018–2019 school year.
