Miss Rachel Ginsberg

Junior High English teacher
“In Gesher Yehuda, we do not have a typical staff-to-student relationship. Anyone who walks through our doors becomes family.”

I have been at Gesher Yehuda for 20 years. Currently, I teach the eighth grade English subjects. My technique caters to the restlessness that students can feel when stuck in a classroom all day. Some students find it difficult and tedious to sit still, focus, and learn for hours. Learning should be engaging and interactive.

My goal is to tap into each student’s innate curiosity to help them hone their critical thinking skills. Studies show that using all five senses: taste, touch, sight, sound, and smell, as much as possible help students learn and  retain information. For this reason, I put effort into making hands-on lessons for each subject.

It is important that students feel they are in a safe environment where they can thrive. That environment is Gesher Yehuda.
