Randi Wolfson ’07, a graduate of the School of Education (SOE), teaches pre-kindergarten at the Rodeph Sholom School in New York City and is working on her master’s degree.
“The teaching experiences I gained as a student at Syracuse University will be in my mind for the rest of my life,” she says. “The School of Education professors are some of the most renowned educators this country has to offer, and I realize how lucky I was to be exposed to their progressive ideas, which are being used in the New York City classrooms today.” Wolfson is enthusiastic about her career choice, finding life in the classroom an exciting challenge. “I love teaching because no two days are the same,” she says. “The impact made on my students is life-changing, and the influence of loving to learn is a powerful tool I get to imprint on others.”
A member of the Board of Visitors and co-chair of the SOE’s Young Alumni Board, Wolfson encourages other young education alumni to maintain close ties with the School. “We are so important to the mission of the School’s advancement strategies because if we don’t get involved, stay involved, and keep in touch with the School, it will lose our vision and lessons from life,” she says. “Time has quickly passed since I graduated, but staying involved with the School of Education has allowed me to continue growing the bond I have so deeply appreciated and respected.”
