I am the director of educational technology at the Sager Solomon Schechter Day School in Northbrook, IL and teach religious school at Lakeside Congregation for Reform Judaism. I've been involved in Jewish education for over thirty years. I received an education degree from Northwestern University with a concentration in instructional media. I'm skilled in using and teaching desktop publishing, video editing, presentation and animation software; and consults and presents regularly on integrating technology into Judaic studies. My students podcast, blog, edit video and create claymations. I co-chaired the technology track for CAJE 33 in Vermont, am a SMART Certified Trainer for SMART Notebook version 10 for both Macintosh and Windows, and a 2011 recipient of the Grinspoon-Steinhardt Award for Excellence in Jewish Education.
