Mussie Deren

I grew up in Milwaukee, WI and completed my degree in Early Childhood Education at Touro College in New York City, with a focus on Jewish education. I’ve taught Pre-K/K classes in various places around the world including Israel, Moscow, and most recently in my hometown of Milwaukee.

I love teaching, exploring, and learning together with my students. I find great joy in nurturing the growth and development of each child by embracing and encouraging their innate sense of wonder, enthusiasm, and creativity. I am inspired to help them find their passion and experience the world around them through their senses, by empowering them to be active agents in learning. In every student I strive to foster an appetite for connecting learning in the classroom to their daily lives.

I can’t wait to be a part of the new Chabad Kindergarten team here in Greenwich!
