Life After Oberlin

I have worked in education before Oberlin, at Oberlin, and ever since. I married an Oberlin classmate, and the star in my sky, David Brody in 1973. We started our family with two little boys born in 1976 (a Bicentennial baby) and 1978. I worked in Early Childhood Education as a teacher and day care center director in the Boston area. I completed a doctorate in Educational Psychology at Emory University in 1984, which freed my time to add a third son to our family in 1985. After his birth we took the family to Israel for a year's adventure, and while we were there, we decided to move to Israel. We spent two more years in the Boston area preparing for this big life change. I worked as the head teacher of a new Jewish day school in Newton, Massachusetts, the Rashi School. In 1988, we moved to Israel, where I retrained to teach English in the public schools. We added our fourth son and a daughter to the family in Israel. I taught junior high school and high school English for the next 15 years. Concurrently, I started teaching English at the college level. I really enjoyed the work, and I stayed at that job until retirement age. On my first sabbatical, I studied educational testing at an Israeli college. Subsequently, I opened a private psychology practice focused on Psycho-educational Testing which I continue to do. My specialty niche is testing bilingual children who have learning difficulties. I am semi-retired, combining my work in psychology with volunteer English teaching and keeping up with my 13 grandchildren who range in age from 1 to almost 17.

It sounds like you have been most generous in sharing your amazing abilities with a wide range of people all over the world. I imagine COVID has impacted your work. Here in Israel, we have had our concert series to a favorite string quartet moved to online concerts. The bright side of this is that we were able to buy the concert series for my sisters-in-law in America as well as for ourselves. Do you ever perform online?
