Among the honorees this year at the upcoming Bnos Malka Academy Dinner will be Mrs. Rivky Babad. As the assistant principal for the preschool and elementary school, since 2007, Mrs. Babad has played a pivotal role in the growth and success of the school.
Holding a dual master’s degree in Education and Special Education, and with 18 years of experience as a first grade Hebrew teacher at Magen David Yeshivah and Shulamith School for Girls, in addition to her years at Bnos Malka, Mrs. Babad is a premiere educator.
Combining her impressive credentials with a genuine warmth and self-effacing sense of humor, she is beloved by her staff, students, and their parents. Mrs. Babad is well known by her students for her warmth, accessibility, and her love of all things Hello Kitty. The teachers and administrators who work with her know that they can count on her unending professionalism and support as both a mentor and an administrator.
Rabbi Michael Weichselbaum, Menahel at Bnos Malka, remarked, “Mrs. Babad is the consummate educator, administrator, and mentor. She balances her professionalism with compassion, her experience with innovation, all with yir’as Shamayim, k’vod rabbanim and ahavas Yisrael. It has been an absolute privilege to work with her for the past 16 years.”
