Day School Transformation Fund

The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford AIM Chai Campaign Day School Transformation Fund has enabled Hebrew High School of New England to properly support professional development and acquire new technology to enhance teaching and learning.

Head of School, Rabbi Bruce, promotes an “Active Learning” approach that helps teachers transition from being a “sage on the stage” to a “guide on the side.” Dr. Mary Botticelli Christensen, an expert in secondary education, works with our faculty to implement this whole-school philosophy in all classrooms, providing monthly faculty workshops and individual mentoring for teachers.

Matthew Camarata, HHNE’s Information Technology Coordinator, ensures that HHNE acquires and deploys instructional technologies that enhance the learning of all students, in part by training teachers.
