Connections forged between teachers and students enrich the
educational experience at Hannah Senesh and are the foundation of
our learning community. Experienced and dedicated teachers
work to create environments that encourage active engagement and
challenge. Each elementary grade is staffed by one general
studies teacher and one Judaic studies teacher. Our
departmentalized Middle School includes teachers of humanities,
mathematics, science, Hebrew language, and Jewish text study.
School-wide specialists include teachers of art, music, physical
education, and performing arts.
Our teachers come from across the country and around the world, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a variety of perspective. All of our teachers are professionals with degrees in education or related disciplines. Many of our teachers are graduates of Bank Street College of Education, Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, and DeLeT: Day School Leadership through Teaching, some of the most innovative and substantive programs in the field. Collaboration among colleagues is encouraged, and extensive professional development opportunities are provided, at both in-house and outside workshops and seminars.
Albert Einstein once said, "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." At Hannah Senesh, our teachers artfully awaken students' curiosity, promoting creative thinking and supporting thoughtful inquiry.
