Community Day School Appoints Director of Early Childhood Education Programs
MONDAY JULY 18, 2022 |
Hershorin Schiff Community Day School (CDS) recently appointed Tracey Bortz as Program Director of the Early Childhood Education Center. Bortz previously served as director of early childhood education at Gross Schechter Day School in Pepper Pike, Ohio. According to CDS school principal Dan Ceaser, Bortz was chosen following a nationwide search that took place over a six-month period. “Our search committee was looking for a seasoned leader who clearly values diversity and teaching universal values to students of all faiths through Jewish values, traditions and practice,” Ceaser says. “Our candidate also needed to be able to cultivate relationships with teachers, students and families to create a positive team spirit throughout the school. We had a long list of other requirements, including that they be lifelong learners who constantly develop their own range of knowledge and skills while encouraging the same development for all Education Center staff from early childhood. We are delighted to say that we have found all of these qualities and more in Ms. Bortz. Tracey Bortz was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. Twenty-one years ago, Bortz and his family emigrated to Cleveland, Ohio. She graduated from the Johannesburg College of Education in South Africa and went on to earn her master’s degree from the Siegal College of Jewish Studies in Cleveland. Bortz enjoys traveling with her husband Barry to visit their children in New York, Chicago and Australia.
