In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, hear from Samuel Rubenstein '13 and how his teacher shaped his career path.
We want to hear from all of you! Please add your story in the comments.
“I had many excellent and caring teachers at GOA, but the one who most shaped my career trajectory was Eleanor Brooks, z"l. She connected me with Steve Fulop, a former SSDS student , who hired me because of Mrs. Brooks's recommendation. That early exposure to politics and policy set me on the course I'm still on today. From time to time I still think of Mrs. Brooks, and like to believe she'd be proud of where I'm at now”.
It's always great to have alumni come visit! Thank you to current GOA parent Joshua Levitt '96 for stopping by!
