DECEMBER 13, 2018, DEDHAM – Nearly 300 people attended The Rashi School’s seventh annual Limud Celebration on November 29 at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley. The event honored Jessica Solomon, who is currently in her 13th year as a faculty member at The Rashi School.
Over the course of Jessica’s tenure, she has been a member of several curriculum review committees, including Social Studies, Science, and SEL. She has worked for Brandeis University as a mentor in their DeLeT program, helped to facilitate Mitzvah Makers, chaperoned the 7th grade trip to Washington D.C., organized the school’s annual Community Seder, and founded the Rashi book club. She also teaches the annual Red Cross Babysitters Training Course offered to middle school students. Jessica’s innovative classroom ambassador program was the inspiration behind the current Admissions Ambassador initiative.
Additionally, Jessica is the proud Rashi parent of a current 2nd and 4th grader. She is a graduate of Phillips Andover Academy and the Mountain School of Milton Academy. She received her B.A. in Political Science from Haverford College in 2001 and went on to receive an M.Ed in Elementary Education from Lesley University in 2006.
This year, the Limud Celebration was co-chaired by three special couples: current parents Jessica and Michael Carroll, Julie Sue and Matthew Goldwasser, and alumni parents Pam and David Hallagan.
