Dr. Cheryl Bahar
At the heart of the Hebrew Academy of Morris County is our dedication to the individual child. Our devoted staff strives to get to know the children. This integral relationship does not only apply to a child's classroom teacher, it extends to all the teachers and assistants in the school, the administration, specialists, office staff, and school nurse. The spirit of the HAMC necessitates that no one becomes anonymous or falls through the cracks.
A focal point of my work here has been to define and examine ways in which HAMC can deliver academic excellence to all of its students. We are taking off in an exciting direction that will offer a tremendous opportunity for our students to exercise their critical thinking, problem solving, and interpersonal skills. This comprehensive movement towards updated technology, an enhanced curriculum, and careful interdisciplinary amalgamations make it an exciting time to be an HAMC student.
The willingness to investigate what is not working and subsequently make the appropriate modifications is vital to the ongoing success of our student body. This reflection was the catalyst to provide our middle school students with their own laptops and to offer our lower school students recess before lunch. This positive approach is the reason why students who require remediation are no longer pulled out of the classroom, was the impetus to bring back an after school homework assistance program, and has resulted in the introduction of SMARTBoards in our school. The ability to question and scrutinize information is embedded in the curriculum here at HAMC. The dual curriculum gives a tremendous opportunity for our students to exercise their critical thinking, problem solving, and interpersonal skills. Even our youngest students at HAMC are encouraged to formulate and articulate mindful and rational points of view.
The administrators and faculty at HAMC are devoted to lifelong learning, being open to change and the expectation that their students will thrive. At HAMC we are committed to ensuring that no child will be left behind.
