Chanie Pawliger teaches 3rd and 4th grade M'silot Judaics this year at Atlanta Jewish Academy. She has worked for 14 years as a teacher in the areas of Literacy (English and Hebrew), Special Education, and Judaic Studies. Chanie's knowledge in Jewish studies was cultivated at Beth Rivkah Schools in Brooklyn, New York, where she enjoyed text-based study in Tanach, Halacha, and Kabbalah, and learned to speak a conversational Hebrew. It is Chanie's goal to foster a strong foundation in text-based skills and to empower the children to take pride in Israel and their Jewish identity.
