Westchester Day School is a Modern-Orthodox day school serving the Westchester Jewish community. With an Early Childhood Center thru 8th grade, the school was established in 1948 and is currently serving nearly 400 students. WDS began a partnership with Hidden Sparks in 2015, after Judith Talesnick, a past Hidden Sparks Coach, became the assistant principal at the school.
Ms. Talesnick was excited about bringing Hidden Sparks programs to the school, “We were hoping that Hidden sparks would help promote a common language about students’ strengths and challenges amongst our faculty. In addition, having an external coach and subsequent internal coaches help promote dialogue amongst teachers and increases the culture of learning.”
