Chavrei Pandot - Panda Friends (5 Day 3's)

2017-18 Registration is Now Open - Click here for more information 

Our three year old Pandot Class is taught by Nora Soroka and Bonnie Altneu.

Nora joined the GECC community nine years ago.  She worked in all the classrooms assisting the teachers.   The warmth and love she instantly felt in the school and synagogue has helped guide and encourage her to share this generous hospitality with the children, families, and her fellow teachers. This will be her seventh year teaching the Pandot class. She also teaches second grade religious school at a local temple.  She is passionate about sharing the teachings and love of Torah with the children.

This is Bonnie's first year working as a teacher in the Pandot class at the GECC.  Bonnie is also starting her 5th year of teaching 2nd grade at B'nai Israel's Talmud Torah Hebrew School.  Before working at the GECC, Bonnie taught kindergarten and first grade for a total of nine years at three different Montgomery County Public Schools and then took time off from teaching to raise a family. Bonnie has grown up in the Rockville, Maryland area since she was eight years old.  She has two children, one about to begin middle school and one about to begin high school.
