Adam GelmonDirector of Learning & Innovation/Grade 3 Judaic Studies
Adam Gelmon rejoined VTT’s leadership in August 2017 as the Director of Learning and Innovation after a hiatus on the east coast.
Adam has dedicated himself to the field of education, rooted in his belief that learning is the path to freedom, self-actualization and societal improvement. A collaborative educational leader, Adam believes that each member of a school community has a unique and valuable perspective and an important place in actively contributing to our school culture and climate.
Adam began his teaching career at Vancouver Talmud Torah as a teacher and then a member of the school leadership team. Seven years ago, he moved out east with his family where he served as vice-principal and principal with the Bluewater District School Board in Southwestern Ontario. His work was focused on improving student achievement, building school communities through active partnerships with parents and families and supporting a multitude of talented educational professionals.
Adam is a proud graduate of Vancouver Talmud Torah, having joined the school as a grade five student after living with his family in Israel for three years. He currently lives in Vancouver with his wife Jessica and his son Arik who attends preschool at VTT, making him the third generation in his family attending our school.
