Miss Nechama Bracha Zehnwirth

Exuding positivity and enthusiasm, Miss Zehnwirth is always up for a good challenge. During a year of intensive study in Israel, she earned a teaching certificate from the Bnos Sara Teachers Institute. Upon her return to the U.S., she earned her Bachelor’s in Psychology from New York’s Excelsior College while teaching 5th – 8th grade girls at the Yeshiva Day School of Las Vegas. She feels that her study of psychology helps her to better understand her students. She encourages them to believe in themselves, and to push past their imagined limitations. Miss Zehnwirth loves watching her girls blossom into confident young adults. 

Miss Zehnwirth subsequently received her Masters of Education in Digital Learning Design and Leadership from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Miss Zehnwirth scripted, directed, and produced the YDLV Middle School Musical “Take Me Home” that made wonderful waves in the community for weeks after. With that same passion for creativity, Miss Zehnwirth was the Summer Director of Project Seed Girls in Buffalo Grove and a dedicated staff member in camps Nageela Orlando, Agudah Midwest, and Nageela Midwest. In Torah Academy, her students look forward to the impactful, fun, and unique lessons she brings them each day!
