Favorite thing about Rodeph Sholom School:

The community and warmth. The love I feel from the children each day and know they feel from me. How the school allows us to personalize things to each child’s interest and find the joy in teaching. 

Other things to know about me:

I was a performer and found Rodeph Sholom through the CRS Theater Company back in 2005 when I auditioned for “Anything Goes”. I wound up performing in 11 productions including playing Lola in “Damn Yankees” and Rosemary in “How to succeed in business.” I started working in the camp in 2007, was hired by Suzie Newman in 2010 to work in the threes where I was for 2 years, before teaching Pre-K for 8, and Kindergarten for 3. I met my husband Joshua Moshen at Rodeph Sholom School, we got engaged at Rodeph Sholom School in the Eisner and now have 2 children. We have an 8 year old son and a 3 year old daughter who goes to Rodeph Sholom School. I love to run and have ran over 100 races. I love singing and dancing, and sing in the classroom with the kids on a daily basis, even if we are doing Number Corner. I love the beach, have an obsession with sharks and learning all about them, I worked in the Rodeph Sholom School camp the summer of 2023 as a theater/dance teacher and had the time of my life. I love singing and dancing. I love the beach, kindness, laughter, and of course… glitter. Everything is better with glitter.
