Rabbi Shaya Denburg
Rabbi Shaya Denburg was already the 3rd grade Judaics Teacher when, in November, the general studies teacher, who was from Canada, went back and could not return to the US. School was well underway; the boys in grade 3 were in great need. Rabbi Shaya stepped up amazingly to the plate and took over the general studies curriculum as if he had been doing this his whole life. The boys in 3rd grade had a wonderful year. Not only did they have a teacher whom they already loved and respected, they learned a tremendous amount in all areas. The boys of 3B are moving on well-prepared for 4th grade due to Rabbi Shaya’s dedication and teaching skills. Hebrew Academy Community School is honored to nominate Rabbi Shaya Denburg as Teacher of the Month for the April recognition.
