Assistant Director of K-12 Inclusion
I am very excited to return to TBS after a few years away in this new role! I am originally from New York, where I grew up involved in my Reform synagogue and finding my love of Judaism at Eisner Camp. After graduating from the University of Delaware, I began at TBS as a JLG. The few years I was at TBS were great and educational and I learned a lot about myself, the ways we can teach and help children, and about my own Judaism. I left TBS in 2020 to pursue my Masters degree in Social Work and am thrilled to be back in this wonderful community in this new role as the Assistant Director of K-12 Inclusion. I believe that Jewish education is so important and I am so excited to be able to provide support so that all of our learners can grow and be a part of this great community!
Director of K-12 Learning and Inclusion
All children can succeed when they are provided with the right tools and support, which is why I love working at Temple Beth Shalom! TBS is a place where curriculum and support are provided in a way that allows each child to be successful.
As the Director of K-12 Learning and Inclusion, I collaborate with Jewish Learning Guides (JLGs) and families to ensure that all children can successfully access the curriculum. I provide training for the K-12 faculty in order to support each child and teen in the Mayim and Etzim learning programs.
Prior to joining the team at TBS in 2013, I worked as a special educator in MA and NYC. I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and have a Masters Degree in Special Education. In January 2021, I founded Sara's Joyful Baking, which allows me to combine my love of teaching with baking.
