Director

Director, Rhoda Rohnstock

 

Shalom!  I came to Gan Haverim in the Fall of 2006, and I fell in love with this school.

While growing up in Fremont, CA I knew early on that I enjoyed working with young children and they had to be part of my life.  I took Early Childhood classes at Chabot College in Hayward and started working with preschool children in 1986.  Since then, I have worked in many programs, including my own home-based child care and state-run preschool programs.

I feel honored that children allow me into their day-to-day lives.  Creating environments in which children feel free to explore, learn and grow is very rewarding to me.  I enjoy attending workshops and conferences and learning new and exciting ideas about working with children.

In my personal life, I am a mother of two really great kids; my son Gregory and my daughter Ajhanaie.  I enjoy photography, crafts, reading and watching my children play sports.
