    Very few Melamdim love a child, give the world through the Torah’s eyes to a child, exemplify a true Chosid to a child and give the Rebbe Nachas like our own esteemed Rabbi Schwei.
    My children are honored to have had this teacher.

    Rabbi Newman , truly one of the best Melamdim. Who shapes ,and motivates every single student. He encourages a deep love for Torah and Chassidus to each Talmud in his class.
    There is no Yeshiva like this anywhere with their warm and excellent staff.

    The love and attention Devorah Rochel showers upon her students is palpable. They are like her own children. She imbues them with a love for learning, crucial skills for social interactions and an appreciation for the seemingly small things in life. Her extensive experience in the school setting, has made her an icon of the school. When mothers hear of Beis Chaya Mushka-they think of Devorah Rochel. Mothers have the sense of calm knowing their daughters will be starting their elementary school years with a most positive beginning.

    Morah Devora Rochel is the one. Loving, caring and sensitive to her students needs. Going over and beyond to maximize the potential in every one of her students with extreme sensitivity and care. Giving over the love of Torah and learning middos in a creative and fun way.
