Mrs. Silverman

“When I was in middle school, I was very close friends with a boy in my class. He was a little chubby and awkward and all the other kids would bully him and make fun of him. He wasn’t invited to parties and he didn’t really have many friends, but he was nice, so I would stand up for him and defend him. I knew how much these comments affected him and hurt him. Being a teacher at Hillel for 30 years, I’ve seen mean kids and nice kids pass through my classroom. As a teacher, if I could have one impact on my students, it would be to make them up-standers. I am a true believer that if the world had more up-standers, the world would be a much sweeter place. I just hope I’ve added my scoop of sugar.”
