7TH GRADE TEACHER
Hi I am Morah Elaine Seltzer and I have been a teacher for 42 years. I have taught many different subjects, but one of the most important days of my teaching career was the day I voiced that I wanted to teach a Holocaust studies class. Up until now I always thought of myself as an Art teacher with Jewish flavors. Suddenly when discussing this topic with Danielle Kassin, I found myself very adamantly wanting to teach this class and inwardly feeling I wanted to honor and teach this subject to our youth. This subject has remained the dearest to my heart over the past ten years at Sinai. As many of you know my parents were both Survivors, but suddenly I had an urge to honor their Survival. Danielle loved the idea and so was born an amazing honor and memorial class about the Holocaust.
