I'm an early childhood consultant working with Jewish early childhood centers in the New York area through my work with The Jewish Education Project. 

 

Through this role, I help facilitate webinars and professional development opportunities.

These have been recorded and can be viewed for your school or your staff's professional development. More resources can be found by visiting our educator's portal.  

Additionally, I teach at American Jewish University in their bachelor's completion program in Jewish Early Childhood.

Testimonial for Sasha's Workshops

 

Sasha Kopp is a passionate, authentic and experienced Early Childhood educator and presenter. She worked hard to perfectly tailor a workshop for my staff on the topic of Outdoor Education Through a Jewish Lens. Sasha took the time to familiarize herself with our program and she geared her presentation to our school setting, community and to what we offer. Her presentation was relevant, inspiring and timely. Due to COVID-19 and all of the precautions and restrictions associated with it, we have shifted our daily schedule and focus from spending more time indoors to spending significantly more time outdoors. Sasha’s session provided fresh new ideas of how to engage with the outdoors, what materials to use when outside, what questions to ask of children and how to bring different areas of learning from inside the classroom to outside the classroom.

 

Although Zoom is not always the most engaging format, Sasha masterfully created a meaningful and pleasing experience for all of the participants. She facilitated stimulating discussions and inspired my staff to think in new ways about the outdoors and to try new things with their class. Sasha prepared a detailed and personal presentation yet she did not just speak from the slides and instead readily engaged with my group. She met us where we currently were at while inspiring us to challenge ourselves and push ourselves further. Although we wish we had more time to learn from Sasha and to delve into this very important topic, we appreciate all of the resources and inspiration she left us with.
