Leadership & Administration
Through my graduate studies I have discovered my true passion for developing and implementing curriculum in the early childhood years. I believe young children are naturally curious about the world around them. Developing inquiry skills early in life fosters children’s curiosity, understanding of the natural world, and their love of learning. My undergraduate degree is in Early Childhood Education from Boston University. After graduating, I spent three years as the lead teacher in the Early Childhood Learning Laboratory at BU and completed my masters in curriculum and teaching with a focus on science for young children.
After teaching at Temple Beth Shalom for several years, I returned as administrator. I am a graduate of Boston University with a double major in International Relations and Psychology. Before coming to TBS I worked in various capacities for a number of small businesses in the area. Whether as a bookkeeper and administrator for Last Minute Productions and as receptionist at a local pediatrician, I enjoy supporting the needs of a bustling office and bringing my organizational skills to the role.
I love the way the Temple Beth Shalom community embraces the Jewish culture in the curriculum and I appreciate being part of a warm and welcoming community.
I am devoted to reaching each and every student and instilling in them a love for learning. I am passionate about designing age-appropriate lessons and activities that teach fundamental academic and social skills and I focus on developing strong relationships within the school community. I hold a masters from Northeastern University and a BS in Education from Necrasov University, St. Petersburg in Russia. I bring over 16 years of teaching experience. Before coming to Temple Beth Shalom I taught toddlers at the Maimonides School in Brookline, preschoolers at Yal-Day-New in Brighton and pre-k children at A to Z Preschool in Needham.
