Yeshiva principal wins national recognition


NEW YORK (JTA) — An Atlanta Jewish day school principal was selected as a 2009 National Distinguished Principal.

Rabbi Kalmen Rosenbaum of the Torah Day School is one of six private school principals to receive the award from the National Association of Elementary School Principals and the U.S. Department of Education. He is the third yeshiva principal ever to be recognized in the award’s 26 years.

"At the helm of every successful school is a successful principal," said Gail Connelly, executive director of the elementary school principals’ group. "Our National Distinguished Principals program provides us with an opportunity to recognize the outstanding leadership of these principals and their commitment to creating successful learning communities. Because of them, students thrive academically, teachers grow professionally and communities are strengthened."
