Since 1988, Herskowitz has also been an educator in the Clarkstown Central School District, where she currently teaches sixth grade English. Her teaching style can be described as student-centered.
"Over the years, I've found that each student comes to me with his or her own strength," says Herskowitz. "It is my job to find that strength and build upon it."
This year, Herskowitz will teach a combined second and third grade class at Beth Am. This is the stage at which students are first introduced to Hebrew vowels and letters, a topic, she says, that gets them very excited.
