Mrs. Candy Kahn —General Studies


General Studies​ will be taught by Mrs. Candy Kahn. Some parents and students had the pleasure of getting to know Mrs. Kahn last year, when she worked in the second grade for half of the year. Mrs. Kahn was educated in South Africa and has been working as an educator in Canada and the United States for the past 6 years. She is a skillful, compassionate educator, who is loving and conscientious. You and your children will adore her! She has been very busy this summer, preparing to ensure that our Kindergarteners have a tremendous year of friendship and learning! 

Morah Devorah Lovitch -Judaic Studies


Judaic Studies​ will be taught by returning teacher Morah Devorah Lovitch. She has taught for many years at the Academy. She is experienced in teaching kindergarten age children and especially in transmitting the holiday lessons and Jewish traditions through their creative projects. Hebrew alphabet and reading is an important skill that is taught at this level and both teachers have seen great success in accomplishing their goals in reading.

"My love for teaching has kept me in the classroom for many years. Our goal is to  embrace our students with a love for learning and pride in their Judaism, and the importance of first and foremost being a “mentch”."
