Email: Elisa Aranoff

I have been at Akiba-Schechter since:

2010

Education/degrees:

Masters Degree in Elementary Education

I like to teach because:

The After-School Program is more laid-back, flexible and fun than the regular school day.

My favorite part of teaching is:

Getting to know the students, and learning what makes them tick.

I became a teacher because:

I love kids!

I'm known by my students for:

Smiling, laughing, singing, being silly, and speaking Hebrew.

When I'm not teaching, I

Work in the school office. I also tutor Bar/Bat Mitzvah students, and I co-founded a children’s Jewish music class called “Zemer Emet.” My hobbies include singing, swimming, biking, Israeli dancing and taking care of my husband and son.
