Dear Kitah Hey,
Welcome to the Kitah Hey class!
I am Diana Weinstein and I will be taking over for Cindy Nelson as your Hebrew teacher for the beginning of the year at Temple Israel. Having worked in the fourth grade class last year, I am very excited to continue learning with you!
As a former student of Cindy’s, I know the importance of creating a classroom that is an “NPD Zone”, (“No Put Downs” i.e. bullying, name-calling, interrupting). In order for you to thrive in our classroom, you must feel safe, respected, and valued.
I look forward to learning and growing with each one of you.
At the end of this year, you will be more confident in your Hebrew reading abilities, you will learn many new prayers, and you will learn more about the meaning behind many of our Jewish customs. Your families will be so proud of all that you have learned and, most importantly, you will be proud of yourselves!
