Abbie LoomerSenior Kindergarten
A graduate of Edmonton Talmud Torah and a long-time Camp Miriam camper and counsellor, Abbie Loomer feels very much at home in a community Jewish day school. Born in Vancouver but raised in Edmonton, Ms. Loomer has a Bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta and a diploma in inclusive education from McGill University and recently acquired a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from UBC.
Upon graduation, Abbie’s first teaching job was in Birmingham, England, where she taught Kindergarten. After travelling around Europe, she moved to Vancouver in 2007 and began substitute teaching at VTT and the Richmond Jewish Day School. After one year at RJDS, she joined our school full-time in 2008 and has taught Grade 1, Kindergarten and physical education.
Abbie strongly believes that all children are capable of achieving and makes it her responsibility to facilitate the building blocks to success and improved self-esteem. Abbie LOVES working with kindergarten-age students and really enjoys collaborating with parents for their children’s optimal growth and development. Having lived on a kibbutz after high school, Abbie can speak some Hebrew but asks that no one test her skills.
