Chaverim – Room 2/4
A former TBANS parent of two, Nancy was excited to begin working at TBANS in the fall of 2008. She has worked in our school as an assistant in the Ladybug Dalet classroom, lead teacher in the “Bets to Be” and Kangaroo classrooms, part of the Bet Support Team, and the assistant for the Jungle Friends. She was thrilled to assume the role of lead Dalet teacher in the fall of 2019. Nancy returns this winter/spring to working with our younger students in the Chaverim classroom. Nancy spent many years working as a pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist. She loves incorporating her vast experience and knowledge of early childhood speech and language development into the classroom.
Stacy returned “home” to work at TBANS in the fall of 2018. Stacy was raised in Montgomery County, graduated from Walter Johnson High School and returned post college. After seeing how TBANS teachers welcomed her family, she was inspired to become an early childhood educator. She participated in training in 2012-13, and then taught at Washington Hebrew Congregation for 4 years. Her son Jake completed TBANS in 2016, and her daughter Maddie in 2018. Now it’s her turn, and she couldn’t be happier! When not in school, you can find Stacy selling packages for a wedding photography company, having silly dance parties with her children, and attending lots of hockey games (Go Caps!).
Beverlee Diamond, a mother of three Temple Beth Ami Nursery School alums, and a former TBANS assistant teacher, is back! Beverlee is from Cape Town, South Africa, where she received her degree in Marketing. Beverlee and her husband Shaun immigrated to the United States in 1993. After spending so much time in the halls of Temple Beth Ami, she found a special community and a love for educating children.
Beverlee starts every morning with a Peloton class and ends every night watching her youngest daughter, Bianca, play soccer. Beverlee’s son Cameron works in the family furniture business. Beverlee’s middle child, Tori, is a 2021 graduate from CESJDS and will be taking a gap year in Israel and then off to Indiana University! Judaism plays a pivotal role in Beverlee’s life and that of her family. Beverlee is so excited for “Round 2” at Gan Ami!
