Ms. Aliza T. Kadish
I grew up in New Jersey, and attended independent day schools from 1st grade through college. I spent my gap year abroad, living in Jerusalem, Israel. Upon my return to New York, I received my B.A. from Yeshiva University. A member of Pi Beta Kappa Honors Society, I received my M.Ed. from New York University in Elementary Education in 2003. I have been an active participant in local, regional, and national professional development projects and have always brought all of the knowledge gained back to the teachers and administration at school. In 2009, I received my certification as a Coach by the ICA (Instructional Coaches Academy). I was accepted to, and completed, DSLTI through Columbia University, where I gained educational leadership training geared towards independent schools.
I began my professional teaching career 1999 in White Plains, NY where I taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. Upon moving to south Florida in 2007, I was a 4th grade classroom teacher for several years. As I grew as an educator, I had opportunities to grow as a leader, as well. I became the Special Projects Coordinator and the After-School Activities Coordinator. These responsibilities took me outside the classroom and allowed me to be a teacher leader, coach, and mentor, as well as the chance to get to know the community more in depth. I was appointed as the Middle School Director in 2013, and Assistant Principal K-8 in 2015. I enjoy knitting, seeing movies and theater, listening to live music, spending time with my family, studying educational methodologies, techniques, and ideas, reading and traveling.
I firmly believe that every child has the capacity to learn and be successful, and every teacher has the ability to grow and adapt. Using multi-modalities, technology, and various instructional techniques, it is important to create an environment where every child can achieve, feel successful, and enrich their learning. I have an open-door policy and invite students, parents, teachers, and administrators to stop by and have open conversations. I am deeply invested in independent education and feel that rigorous academics taught alongside values strengthen the individual, the community, and the world.
