Hi everyone! My name is Sammy Meckler, and I am very excited to start my first year as Hannah Senesh’s 7th grade humanities teacher and sixth year as a teacher. I moved to New York–mid-pandemic–from the San Francisco Bay Area where I taught 8th grade humanities at a Jewish Day School for the past three years. This year, the students will read a variety of books, build their writing skills, and develop their knowledge of U.S. history. I am looking forward to helping the students grow and learn, as well as learning alongside them throughout the year.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here’s to a great year!
Bruchim HaBaym Le Ivrit- Welcome to a year of Hebrew!
My name is Andreea Adereth and this is my 12th year teaching Hebrew in the Middle School at Hannah Senesh. Teaching Hebrew as a Second Language is my passion! I look forward to guiding the children on an exciting journey in which they will discover the beauty of speaking a second language and will be able to communicate with Israelis and with Hebrew speakers from the entire world. In addition to teaching Hebrew, I strive to instill in my students a lifelong love for learning and a real connection to Israel, to its people, language, and culture.
I can always be reached at email@example.com and I cannot wait to meet everyone soon!
Hello, I am Mike Noll, an excited fourth year school teacher here at Hannah Senesh. I hope to continue contributing to the community as your Middle School science teacher.

I am looking forward, with great anticipation, to a fabulous year of science learning. Throughout the year, if you have any questions concerning our class or your child, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi everyone! My name is Shana Orlando, and I’m excited to be returning for my third year as the 7th and 8th grade math teacher at Hannah Senesh! I am extremely passionate about Mathematics and have spent the past 11 years teaching and tutoring all levels of math from Kindergarten through college.
Welcome! I am looking forward to a wonderful year of learning with the 7th grade. We will be exploring ספר במדבר/the book ofNumbersand thinking about what it takes to turn a group of whiny, dependent, immature slaves into a self-sufficient, courageous, and mature nation. Does our past determine our future? Can we choose to become more mature? How should a society balance the needs of individuals with the needs of the group? Students will also look at laws and ethical dilemmas in rabbinic texts, and will get a chance to develop and articulate their thinking through debate, art projects, technology, and reflective writing. I can’t wait!
