Hi, my name is Elizabeth.  During the summer, I am a staff member for Ramah.  For many years I worked at Ramah New England but since 2013, I have been lucky enough to be a staff member on Ramah Seminar, a trip to Israel for teenagers who have attended a Ramah Camp program in the United States.  The Ramah Camps are a branch of the Conservative Jewish Movement, providing a halachic, egalitarian, observant summer experience for Jewish children.  For 7 summers I worked at Ramah New England as the “Inclusion Coordinator,” working to include children with physical, intellectual, and social disabilities with their typically developing peers.  During the rest of the year, I am a Special Education teacher in Montgomery County, MD.

Feel free to leave comments.  I love hearing your thoughts and additions to my ramblings.
