THE ANSWER: We are looking for someone great to be our new EXECUTIVE  ASSISTANT TO THE HEAD OF SCHOOL. This individual is responsible for working directly in an administrative support role and reports directly to the Head of School. Akiba-Schechter is a vibrant Jewish Day School community of students, staff, parents and the occasional rabbit from the park across the street. We are a family devoted to the teaching and learning of all the children and staff in our building. We are devoted to celebrating and preserving childhood while being a leader in the field of education. We are committed to creating a positive culture for our students and staff, and we are looking for someone to help support our new and exciting Head of School in continuing to do just that.


A College diploma or higher; ideally supplemented by a minimum of two (2) years previous experience that includes administrative or clerical work, or any equivalent experience which provides the required knowledge, skills and abilities to perform the essential job functions. However, we also feel strongly that your degrees and experience do not define you so if you think you are the right person for this position apply. We are just looking for someone with the right energy, creativity and work ethic that loves everything listed below.


  • the sound of little kids with huge smiles on their faces because they are enjoying school
  • interacting with people of all ages (the kids, their parents, grandparents and all the teachers who adore them)
  • solving little problems, big problems and the occasional middle of the road problem
  • representing an amazing school community
  • expressing yourself with your strong verbal skills and writing the occasional magnum opus in the form of a memo, email or newsletter
  • being creative and sharing your ideas because you know your ideas rock
  • organizing a highly creative Head of School who needs to be told once in while to put the skateboard away and finish that letter
  • not one, not two, not three, but a multitude of tasks
  • Apple, but can tolerate Windows
  • database systems, word processing, spreadsheets….ok you don’t love them, but you know how to use them and use them well. Knowing and loving Adobe Creative Suite would be a plus.
  • that there is no “I” in team, but have occasionally smirked at the fact that “me” is in it
  • the idea of working at a school that is leading the way in education and you want to be a part of it

This is a full-time position, and if you are interested, please email with the subject “I AM IN!”
