Shabbat Greetings from Pam Barkley – July 12, 2013

pam barkleyI’ve gotten a quizzical look from many of you as you passed me by in the TBA building the past few weeks. “It’s summer, aren’t you off?” you say, brimming with excitement for me. I truly love your enthusiasm for my vacation. But in reality, summer is not actually one big time off. True, the kids are not here in classrooms on Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays so I am not technically “running” the school. However, all those things we do in the school on Sundays,  Mondays, and Wednesdays require an awful lot of planning.

I have been meeting with every teacher to talk about the past year and figure out ways to improve what we do for the upcoming school year. There are many new projects and programs we are working on and I hope you will be as excited as I am about the ways in which we are seeking innovation in Jewish education.

So in the meantime, I hope you are all enjoying your summers so far — if you’re in the building, please do feel free to stop by my office and say “Hi”. I’m here!

Pamela Barkley
