I'm a woman in my mid-fifties, no longer a carpooler, no longer a wife, no longer a "maker of family dinners." I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Europe this past summer with a group of educators to experience Poland, Austria, Croatia and Bosnia.
I'm the technology coordinator at the Sager Solomon Schechter Middle School in Northbrook, IL and teach religious school at Lakeside Congregation for Reform Judaism. Involved in Jewish education for over thirty years, I received an education degree from Northwestern University with a concentration in instructional media. I use and teach desktop publishing, video editing, presentation and animation software; and consult and present regularly on integrating technology into Judaic studies. My students podcast, blog, edit video and create claymations. I am a proud recipient of the 2011 Grinspoon-Steinhardt Award for Excellence in Jewish Education.
