Shalom Corner Summer Staff

Lynn Kaminski, Director

Lynn taught kindergarten in the Wellesley Public Schools for 27 years. She was previously a teacher at the Open Center for Children in Somerville, and she worked at the Tufts Educational Day Care Center and the Eliot Pearson Children’s School while earning a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from Tufts University.

Over her years in kindergarten, Lynn came to appreciate the importance of the foundation laid in preschool to students’ later success, which motivated her to complete her license as Director while still teaching.

A long-time member of Temple Beth David, she lives in Westwood with her husband and two children - all active members of the Beth David community. She is thrilled to be the first Director of Shalom Corner, and to be back with the young children - and remarkable teachers - who will make up this preschool experience.

Marcia Schwartz

Marcia has been in the childcare profession for over 30 years. She has worked mostly with infants and toddlers and enjoys watching them learn and grow.

Marcia, her son Seth, and his cat Luna have lived in Mansfield for 5 years.  Marcia is excited to be back at Shalom Corner, working with Nandita and Bianca to make the toddler classroom warm and inviting.  She is looking forward to another great year of learning and fun - not only for the toddlers, but for herself.

Keshet Teachers

Keshet (Fours-Fives) Head Teacher

Shaney graduated from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in 2010 with a degree in English/Communications. Education and childcare have also been her passions, and for 8 years she worked as a pre-k teacher at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Boston. In 2020 she took some time off to have her son Aaron, who just turned two! She returned to work in January 2021 and spent 6 months working in the infant room with Aaron by her side.
