Ms. Sarah Shpall, a General Studies teacher at the Wise School, has been passionately instructing the next great generation of writers, performers and scholars for over 13 years. Ms. Shpall uses her infectious sense of humor, creativity and artistic skills to engage sixth grade students in their daily studies, expertly weaving Torah teachings and Judaic principles into every lesson.
By developing her own interactive grammar notebook, decorating elaborate bulletin boards, co-chairing the writing curriculum review committee, and integrating content of her Judaic Studies partners into her daily lessons, Ms. Shpall sets up her students for success across the curriculum. Outside of the classroom, Ms. Shpall coordinates all grade-level activities, co-directs the spring musical and directs the graduation ceremony. She helped lead the annual sixth grade Israel trip, where students had the unique opportunity to experience teachings from their Judaic Studies firsthand.
