Recipient of the 2004 Milken Educator Award, Pam Kleinman received her B.S. in Education from Illinois State University. Additionally, she has her California State Teaching Credential from California State University, Northridge and an Educational Therapy Certification from the University of California, Los Angeles. Pam began her career as a teacher in our own elementary school and went on to work at Temple Emanuel Day School, Heschel Northridge and Heschel West. She has taught all grade levels. For the past 6 years, Ms. Kleinman has served as Heschel West’s coordinator for students, curriculum, and faculty, working with all aspects of programming and staff in order to strengthen and enrich a community of learners. In addition, Pam served as a member of Heschel West's Student Study Team. When she’s not on campus, Pam can be found working privately as an educational therapist with students of all ages. She is excited about rejoining the staff at Stephen S.Wise; she feels that here she is afforded the opportunity to use her passion, skills, and experience in a way that is meaningful, while being a part of this caring community.
