Hebrew Academy teachers have both traditional and Montessori educational experience and training. Each member of our school faculty

is sensitive to the needs of the students and their families.

 

The faculty meets weekly to discuss curriculum, plan programs and share and exchange ideas. In order to uphold the high standards of our

program, staff development is ongoing throughout the year. This ensures that our teachers remain alert to the ever-changing needs of

today's families and to the findings of current research.

 

Our Head of School,  Mrs. Sulha Dubrowski, our teachers and staff are an unusually dedicated group of professionals whose level of

commitment to each child does not stop at the classroom door, and whose commitment to education is truly an avocation. As a result, they

bring to their jobs a unique and special blend of professional skills and personal experience.
