Welcoming Randy Gawel

What’s in a title? For Randy Gawel - new Director of General Studies at Frankel Jewish Academy (FJA) - it was not the office, but the community of the school with all its opportunities open to students that influenced him to join the staff this year. It was a decision not easily made after eight fulfilling years as Principal of Berkley High School. But Randy and his wife, Leah, both Frankel parents themselves, can attest that his move to FJA was the right step in an academic career where he has always thrived; a natural leader, a gifted educator, warm and welcoming to all, and ever focused on the well-being of students.
