Making a difference in the lives of so many young children and their families brings Sydney great joy. She feels so fortunate to be able to do what she loves by sharing her passion for early childhood education with everyone within the Kol Tikvah family. From children to their parents, from teachers to administration; Sydney strives to make everyone feel like school is their home away from home, by offering a warm and loving environment and an enriching, high-quality academic program. Her goal is to lay the foundation for life-long learning that will transcend far beyond the preschool years.
Sydney was born in Florida and lives in Parkland with her husband Steve and their 2 children.
