Sara Hirsch

We are thrilled to honor Mrs. Sara Hirsch with the Rabbi Israel M. Axelrod Excellence in Education Award.

Sara Hirsch has been in the field of education for over 10 years. Her passion for Early Childhood Education was ignited as a student in Stern College where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.

Sara was born and raised in Chicago, IL, and spent her gap year in Israel at Midreshet Moriah. After graduating college, she moved to Philadelphia where her husband, Dani, a Philly native, was starting medical school. She began her teaching career at Caskey Torah Academy and has been teaching here for the past 9 years.

Sara’s educational philosophy is to meet children at their developmental level and to work with their individual needs. Her ultimate goal is to foster every child’s unique personality and create confident and happy children.

Sara and Dani have three children; Zach, who is currently in 1st grade at CTA, Jake, who is in 3Y at CTA and Dahlia, a future CTA student.
