INTRODUCING ASSISTANT DIRECTOR DREW ROTHMAN!
Drew is thrilled to be returning to Camp B’nai Brith of Ottawa this summer to take on the role of an Assistant Director. Drew spent 15 years immersed in camp life, where he honed many skills that have so greatly enriched all aspects of his personal and professional life to this day. Drew and his wife Sarah Rosenhek – whom he met at CBB of Ottawa! – Have a five-year old son, Nate, and a two-year old daughter, Rose, who will be up at camp this summer.
After graduating from Concordia University, Montreal, with a B.A in Philosophy, Drew received his Master's Degree in Education from SUNY Potsdam. There, he discovered his true passion for education and working with children, and has been has been teaching math, science and English for the past 10 years in various Jewish day schools in Toronto and Montreal.
Drew is currently living in Montreal, where he will begin his fifth year at the Akiva School this fall. Drew believes that children thrive when allowed the freedom to express themselves as individuals...a philosophy he is eager to help continue at CBB of Ottawa.
While Drew takes great pride in fostering a creative learning environment for his students, he also knows that some of the best educational and experiential learning happens outside of the classroom. Camp is the ideal setting to celebrate camper’s Jewish identity, and that these lifelong experiences will make them responsible, proud and successful members of our community. He recognizes that participating in camp life offers kids tremendous opportunities for personal growth, deep-rooted friendships, leadership-development skills, and the chance to discover who they are.
Drew is excited to join the CBB of Ottawa leadership team and show campers the summer of a lifetime!
