Tobee Waxenberg, Director of Raker Religious School
Tobee began her teaching career as a high school Debate Coach and Sociology teacher. Upon moving to Phoenix, she established the Jewish Resource Center and became a member of Temple Solel.
Over the years at Solel, Tobee taught eighth grade, Confirmation, ran the summer camp, and was principal of Raker Religious School. She taught pre-K for one year in the Solel preschool and then moved on to the Solel School and taught Kindergarten for seven years. Once the Solel School became the Pardes Jewish Day School, Tobee opened the middle school and had the pleasure of being at Pardes for twenty five years.
Since retiring from Pardes, Tobee is very fortunate and excited to become Director of Raker Religious School, where the students are happy and the teachers are the best!
Tobee and her husband Jim have been members of Temple Solel since 1980. Their son Andy had his Bar Mitzvah and Confirmation here as well as their daughter Natalie. Andy is married to Hallie and has two daughters, Lily and Ella.
