Our Teachers

We feel so very blessed to have such a wonderful team of hard-working, fun, energetic teachers enriching the lives of our students. Our teachers take pride in being relevant to the children’s lives and truly care about each and every student. Our retention of committed teachers is very high, as many are members of our community and synagogue, as well as having their own children in our program.

 

Rabbi Amy and Rabbi Alex

Both Rabbi Amy and Rabbi Alex take incredible joy in creating a comfortable environment for all students to be able to call home. They focus on what each child will take away and remember from their time spent at Beth El Spiegel Religious School. Making joyful memories is truly paramount. Their hope is that each student will leave Beth El Spiegel Religious School with a personal relationship with God and Judaism that they will take with them through the rest of their life’s journey.
