Lisa Boroditsky, born and raised in Vancouver, is a proud VTT graduate. She completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of Western Ontario and discovered her passion for working with children while directing a summer day camp in Winnipeg for three summers.
After traveling Europe, Lisa returned home and completed her Early Childhood Education degree and landed her first job in VTT’s preschool teaching alongside the much beloved, Loris Cohen.
In 1992, Lisa and her husband moved to Chicago for four years where she taught preschool at the Akiba Schecter Jewish Day School. While there, Lisa established baby clubs, two-year-old programs and summer preschool programs. By the time they returned to Vancouver, her first son, Matthew, had been born.
Back on home soil, Lisa ran the Beth Israel baby club, worked as Beth Tikvah’s Hebrew school director, and did some substitute teacher—all while adding two more sons, Jordan and Noah, to her growing family, all of whom, coincidentally, are also proud VTT alumni.
Lisa has been contributing to VTT’s early childhood education department for the last seven years. And her passion for children and for the Jewish community is unabated. It is evident she loves being a member of VTT’s dynamic early years team.
Art therapy, mindfulness and best educational practice are some of Lisa’s many interests.
