מריה רוזן , סגנית המנהלת – תחום פדגוגי
I am excited to be entering my tenth school year with Hebrew Language Academy. I began as a second-grade teacher directly following college graduation, gained a strong skill set, and soon moved into the role of Academic Dean for ELA. I am proud to now step into the role of Assistant Head of School for Instruction. I am a graduate of Adelphi University with a bachelor’s in English and a Master’s in Education. In my role I oversee academic planning and curriculum, as well as content implementation and aspects of professional development while ensuring instruction is joyful and rigorous.
I am truly passionate about bringing Hebrew Public’s mission to life and see myself as a lifelong learner. I am absolutely committed to doing my part each day in providing high-quality education and rich learning experiences. I view HLA as my home and the staff and students as family. I am also a proud mom to a wonderful 5-year-old daughter who I spend all of my time with when I am not at HLA. I bring the perspective of both educator and parent to my work and keep myself grounded in the why behind our work; the academic success and well-being of every student.

Chelsea Gorski Halpern- Special Education Coordinator

I am extremely excited to begin my fifth year at HLA. I began my career here as a 5th and 6th grade Math and Science ICT teacher. Within that, I was formally trained for our International Baccalaureate program. I then moved into an 8th grade ICT role tracking the progress of one class in all four core subjects. I then transitioned out of teaching and into the IEP coordinator position where I became responsible for overseeing the writing and implementation of IEPs and related services for our students with disabilities, as well as our Multi-Language Learners program as well. I will be working closely with staff, students, and families to ensure that the individual needs of our students are fully met. I am looking forward to an amazing school year working closely with the HLA community and fostering a structured but joyful learning environment.
I have received my BA in History and Education from Mount Saint Mary College. I graduated dual certified in Childhood Education and Students with Disabilities. I am currently finishing my Masters in Students with Disabilities 7-12. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and friends and hanging out on the beach. I enjoy baking and cooking. I also love trying new and adventurous things (sky-diving anyone?).
