What They Say...
Commendations from parents and co-workers
One of the most gifted, caring and creative teachers I've met in my career as a principal. Tehila makes the world an exciting place for children to explore and experience. She instills a love for Judaism while teaching the building blocks for social/emotional development. Children remember Morah Tehila's preschool class as one of the best years of school for years to come.

A number of my children have had Morah Tehila as a teacher. She greets every child with a smile and they are happy to go to school. Her background in art adds to the creativity of the class, making sure the projects that the kids come home with are always high quality. We have only good things to say. Rest assured that you will be happy and confident that your child will have a warm and nurturing environment with Morah Tehila!

Morah Tehila is such a special teacher. She was our first Morah when my oldest was 19 months. Her gentle nature, compassion and understanding made the ease of transitioning from Mommy to school so smooth. Tehila infuses her teaching with nature, music, art and new experiences young children crave. I loved seeing how engaged the children are in her classroom, and how she helps the students problem solve and gain independence. She has such a gift. There is no one I'd rather have my children spend the day with!

My son has had the privilege of being educated by Morah Tehila for all or part of each of the past three school years. Morah Tehila is an amazing educator with incredible talents — music, language, puppets, art. You name it, she has what it takes to reach these little minds and open them wide. Her heart is so big and full of love for her work and the kids. She knows how to engage each child in a way that means the most to him or her. It’s a joy to watch her in the classroom. Your child can only blossom in her class!

Morah Tehila has been my son's Morah for the past 2 years. Her warmth and love for each child is evident in every interaction. My son loved going to school every morning and looked forward to spending the day with his Morah. Morah Tehila helped each child make progress and grow at his/her level. She meets each child where they are and helps them meet the next set of goals. My son was on the quiet side and she helped him feel comfortable and blossom in her classroom. He developed confidence in his abilities and felt comfortable participating in all of the activities. He developed a close relationship with her and is proud to share his successes with her outside of the classroom as well. Morah Tehila's activities are fun, engaging and educationally appropriate. She plans intentionally and prepares activities that help children develop in all domains. I highly recommend Morah Tehila and we will miss her at Maayan Torah Day School.
