Rabbi Dov Huff
Judaic Studies Principal, Middle & Upper School
"I discovered from my earliest teaching that to successfully encourage student growth, one must create a culture of learning within the classroom. There must be an ongoing classroom dialogue in which the skills and concepts we teach become an intrinsic part of each student's daily language and experience. Every subject has a specific skill set that needs to be sharpened and reinforced throughout the year. When teaching is done well, students emerge from the learning environment with the motivation and skills to be successful, independent learners."
An alumnus of the class of 2000, Rabbi Dov Huff returned to Maimonides in 2008 as a Middle School Judaic Studies teacher and 8th grade dean. In 2010, he joined the administrative staff as Assistant Principal. He was promoted to his current position in 2015.
