Mrs. Markell, known as “Morah Judy,” is a long-time educator in the South Florida Jewish community. She holds the nationally-recognized CDA (Child Development Associate) credential for VPK teaching and is certified in GOLD Teaching Strategies for development and learning. She has also acted as a mentor to other teacher’s, helping them develop their teaching strategies. Her goal has always been to listen carefully to each child (and their families), get to know who they are, and then help them develop their character within, allowing them to reach and discover their greatest potential through Torah and Yiras Shamayim. Recently, she has used the S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) method to teach children, bringing everyone’s talents together. She believes that teaching is a gift from Hashem and it is a privilege to teach each student. Among some of her favorite hobbies are puppetry, writing children’s books, woodworking, recycle art, animals, and nature exploration.
