We are thrilled to announce that we have a new Religious School Director! Welcome Mindy Schreff. Here is a little bit about Mindy’s background. Mindy has been at Temple Sha’arey Shalom in Springfield since 1998. She began and continues to be an educator in grades 1, 2 and 4 and has been their family educator since 2002. In 2005, she became their Assistant Principal as well; and in 2009 she took over as educator of their confirmation program. Each of these roles was cumulative, giving her a wide range of responsibilities.
Mindy has an MS in Environmental Behavior Studies, a BF in Interior Design. She has completed courses and workshops in Jewish education, Family education and Storahlab training with the Partnership for Jewish Life and Learning, Panim and Brandeis University. In addition, Mindy has been a Mentor in Moreh with Mentors since 2004 and is the 2009 recipient of the Hoffman/Grinspoon-Steinhard Award for Excellence in Jewish Education.
I am sure that each of you will join us in welcoming our new Religious School Director! Feel free to make an appointment over the summer to stop by and chat with Mindy.
