Hi, my name is Michelle and I am the 2015 Guidance Supervisor at Camp Solomon Schechter. I grew up in Spokane Washington attending Temple Beth Shalom, participating in USY, and spending my summers at CSS! I was on staff as the parent liaison in the summer of 2012. Work obligations kept me from coming back the past few summer and I’m ecstatic to be able to come back again as the Guidance Supervisor!
I earned my Masters in Education from Gonzaga University (the one with the killer basketball team) and did my undergrad in psychology with an emphasis on adolescence. My professional interests include keeping youth programming relevant, inspiring, and spiritual, as well as innovative curriculum development. I was previously co-education director at Temple Beth Shalom as well as the youth advisor for Kadima and USY.
Currently I work for Spokane Public Schools and I have two freshmen in high school at home (and I can’t wait for them to earn drivers licenses!). My personal interests include anything food related, contemporary food matters, agricultural and environmental issues, natural health, and the study of ancient earth-based roots of Judaism.
I am so looking forward to the opportunity to help our Jewish youth spend a summer connecting nature, Judaism, and our camp community. See you this summer!
