There, she built the art curriculum of the school and was responsible for school Hebrew program sets. She also coordinated integration with public students' exhibitions and competitions that involved Jewish values and Pro-Israel concepts at the Georgia Governor's mansion.

She is dedicated to a student-focused learning environment, helping all students learn and advance the four main language skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
