1st Hebrew Teacher
1st Hebrew Teacher
Every child has a unique learning style, personality and life story. I love working in a school where, as a culture, we honor that uniqueness on a daily basis. Here, children become who they are genuinely meant to become.
Ensuring that children feel a sense of security and belonging enables them to accept and participate actively in transforming situations. That is what leads to meaningful learning.
My passion is giving students the skills of critical thinking, skillful reading, and artful communication that assists them in interpreting and improving the world through language.
Hebrew opens the door to a deeper understanding of Israel and its people, of our heritage and our shared history as a Jewish people. I love being able to hand my students the key to that door.
The most rewarding part of my work is watching children build confidence. When they believe in themselves and have a mindset that they can tackle any challenge, I know they have not just learned content, but also important life skills.
Choosing Jewish day school for my children was among the best decisions and most worthwhile investments my husband and I ever made. Now I spend my days sharing the opportunity for a Mirowitz education with others. It’s a dream job.
My favorite memories of childhood centered around choir practice, concerts and musical theater performances. I am honored to now give my students the opportunity to discover their own talents.
My eyes light up when a student creates a carefully thought out piece of art. I can see their ownership and confidence grow. The excitement of their successful delights me and encourages us both to take on greater challenges.
I am inspired by the way the community supports our school! It is wonderful to know that our mission and meaningful work are recognized and appreciated.
Using my knowledge and skills, I am a partner in the students' learning, guiding them through the repeated acts of music making, helping them gain new experience and insight each time they create, perform, listen, or reflect.
I feel I can change the world by making a difference one person at a time. I feel personal reward every time I help a child feel better, and love to help them make healthy choices.
I am thrilled to be able to work in an environment and provide services to such a tight knit family of people that I am now honored to call 'home'. Mirowitz is not just a career, it is family!
Being in an environment where children are celebrated and able to grow to their fullest potential is more exhilarating than a cup of coffee! I’m honored to be a part of this team!
The enthusiasm for learning and growth here is palpable. Building relationships with students and understanding their perspectives and curiosities encourages us all to challenge each other and reach our full potential.
I love that moment when all of the pieces fall into place and a child says “I get it now!” Every day, I get to wake up knowing that I will help a child grow in skills and confidence toward their highest potential. That is incredibly rewarding.
I was always inspired by teachers who believed in me and encouraged me to take intellectual risks. Now it’s my turn to pass it forward!
I am so happy to be back at this school! I love watching the kids grow, and helping to make sure the school is a great environment for learning.
The "lightbulb" moment. There is nothing better than witnessing a student grasp a concept, make a connection or apply a new skill. As a teacher, I strive for and relish these moments.
I am inspired watching children and families develop social and emotional skills that benefit them for a lifetime.
I love young adults. They are not daunted by life yet. There is always a bright light at the end of the period! We are creating our future right now.
My own childhood experience as a Jewish day school student gave me the confidence to know who I was and what I stand for. It was like someone tapped me with a leadership wand and said “You can do that!” I can't wait to give that gift to others.
Learning a new language is like going on a journey. I believe in learning through experience and creating an environment that allows children to build confidence and express their genuine thoughts. Mirowitz students are especially comfortable expressing themselves. I love this healthy culture and am thrilled to be a part of it!
I want for Mirowitz students what I want for my own children: for them to be challenged and loved, and prepared for what comes next and excited about learning.
I believe that Israel education and Hebrew language are integral components of the identity development of our students and the future of the Jewish people. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with children during their developmental years when their learning has the greatest impact.
I am inspired Mirowitz student and their drive to learn and improve...in the classroom and on the ball field. It's very gratifying as a teacher and as a coach to have that kind of impact on a child.
I take each of my students on a journey of discovery that helps them grow socially, emotionally and intellectually to become all they can become. I am grateful to be an educator — a career that allows me to positively impact the childhood of my students. As I watch them grow throughout their Mirowitz years, I feel proud to have played a role in the development of the school’s bright, articulate and ethical graduates.
Great teachers are remembered not for the knowledge they impart but for the way they encourage and lift their students' achievement in and out of the classroom.
Each day presents the chance to find ways to increase students' desire to learn more, try harder and find success at something they never thought was possible.
I believe that every moment of our lives has potential. As educators, we have the privilege of uplifting the moments of our students' childhood so that they can learn, grow, and be a part of an ideal community.
I am proud to be part of a community that values individual learners and their successes. Nothing is more satisfying than watching children acheive their goals and grow as inspired learners.
There is a tremendous reward in working with children. In addition the pleasure I get when they discover their abilities, I enjoy the friendships we develop.
I have the privilege of changing children’s perceptions of food and nutrition. It turns out, kids DO like vegetables. The fact that I get to do all of this while working for the Jewish community combines all the things I care about.
I am inspired when I see young flexible minds come up with unexpected solutions! I love to teach the creative and critical thinking needed for solving problems.
At Mirowitz, learning is both playful and values-driven, creative and intellectually vibrant, transformative and joyful. I feel fortunate to be a part of this kind of learning community.
Every day, Mirowitz students come to school ready to be the best version of themselves. They share love and support to peers and faculty around them, showing that they truly know what it means to be a passionate, kind leader.
I love giving students opportunities to learn, comprehend and interact with technology in ways that help them solve problems, complete projects and creatively extend their abilities.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Mirowitz community! I want to instill a love of learning in each child in the classroom. It is important that each memner of our classroom community feel valued, accepted and appreciated. We are a family!
At Mirowitz, each teacher brings expertise and passion to the classroom. I especially love to infuse my own love of Hebrew language, Israel, and Jewish and Israeli cultural arts into my lessons.
It is such a privilege to be teaching at Mirowitz . I love providing the love, encouragement and support to help students reach their potential .
Mirowitz embodies the culture and values all children deserve to learn and experience. Our faculty and staff create a warm and nurturing environment for our students to bravely stretch themselves as learners and to develop lasting friendships.
I relish in those "ah-ha" moments when my students connect what we’ve learned in class to what is happening in the world around them.
I want my students to remember where they belong and where they come from. Teaching Hebrew and about Israel reminds them that they have a Jewish home.
I feel fortunate to work at a school that recognizes how children learn differently and allows a variety of materials and equipment to support learning and success in the classroom. Here, each child can reach his or her potential.
Educating in a pluralistic setting is exciting to me. By teaching pluralism we empower our children with the skills and attitudes necessary for building future communities that are respectful, rooted in joyful practice, and intent on increasing tzedek in the world. That is what our Jewish future needs.
I am inspired by my students' curiosity about the world around them and their passion for learning. I love embarking on the process of discovery together.
I believe all forms of communication are valid. It's inspiring to help a child feel empowered as they connect with others in meaningful ways and become confident knowing that what they say matters.
At Mirowitz, students experience many ways to “be Jewish” through text study, prayer and Torah services, middot practice and holidays celebrations. I am so fortunate to teach Judaics in a pluralistic day school where students have an opportunity to ask deep questions, learn how the Torah and our sages answer them, and then formulate their own interpretations through art, writing, debates and role play.
I want Mirowitz students to be proud to be Jewish and to understand that Israel belongs to them. I’m excited to share my favorite songs and games, to talk about cities and kibbutzim, to connect them to special places like the Kinneret and the Kotel. I’m excited to share my own family’s story of leaving Russia as refuseniks, and to explain the diversity of the Israeli people.
I love this quote from Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus: “Take chances, make mistakes and get messy!” I seek to create a classroom that allows for chances, mistakes and messiness, where children feel safe in their vulnerability, and where creativity, enthusiasm, and joyful learning are possible.
I feel I’m giving kids a skill that is not only academic. Being able to communicate with confidence translates into personal relationships, and my greatest moments are when I see a light bulb go on, and the flood of progress that follows.
What inspires me? Children! I am grateful to be in a position to put a smile on a child’s face every day!
I look at each student as a puzzle, and it is my role to put the pieces — the skills — together. The most rewarding moments are when those pieces finally fit, and a child can say with confidence, “I am a reader,” or “I am a mathematician.”
