I joined the Schechter team, exactly one year ago, after working in the public school sector for over forty years. My experience in the public schools was enriching, rewarding and I will always be an advocate for public school education. While my career was focused in public education up until last year, this transition has really shown me how tremendous a day school education, particularly what we offer at Schechter, can be for a student and family. I have been repeatedly impressed with the students, faculty and curriculum at Gross Schechter. While there are always areas in which to grow, I have seen, first hand, the benefits that come with a Jewish Day School education. Allow me to share a few.
