Jamie Faith Woods (Cohort 1)

Jamie Faith Woods currently teaches fifth grade general studies at the Jewish Community Day School of Rhode Island, in Providence, RI. She is a day school graduate herself and most days feels as if she were put on earth to teach fifth grade in a Jewish day school.

Jamie was a fellow during DeLeT’s pilot year and she still considers herself a proud member of cohort one (at Brandeis). This year marks Jamie’s first year as a DeLeT mentor, an endeavor that has taught her more than she expected.

She is the mother of two young daughters: Eliora (who attends Kindergarten at JCDSRI) and Kelila. When not in the classroom or working on teaching, she is focused on trying to harmoniously balance parenting, spending time with her husband, and working to make the world a much better place. Some of her passions include: travel, holistic living, the environment, hiking, skiing, reading, writing, and food.
