Mindy Shulman Croitoru retires from JPPS

One of our community’s most dedicated school teachers, longtime District 2 resident Mindy Shulman Croitoru, has announced her retirement from JPPS after a remarkable career spanning nearly four decades.

“For close to four decades, Mindy Shulman Croitoru has shared her skill, experience and love of teaching with the children of JPPS,” wrote Marnie Stein, Principal and Co-Head of School at JPPS. “ She has inspired her students to reach their individual potential in English, Math and Science.”

Mindy’s retirement is effective January 2019.  Will she join our Volunteer Citizens  on Patrol (VCOPs) like her husband Marty, recently recognized as one our Volunteers of the Year? My guess is she will try and take it easy for a while and also enjoy life as a grandma!

 “With care and warmth, Mindy taught the students of JPPS the love of learning and the personal rewards of being a lifelong learner,” Stein continued. “As a role model to her students, she taught each and every one of them that hard work and perseverance pays off. The energy she devoted to that end is very much appreciated by the entire JPPS family.”

Stein noted that  throughout her years at JPPS, Mindy remained committed to her students and to helping develop their confidence as learners. “Her colleagues will cherish their memories of working alongside her and we feel so fortunate that our students were taught by such a special teacher,” she stated.

In the Talmud it is written that, "He who teaches a child, it is as though he created it." Stein wishes to  thank Mindy for the years of hard work and devotion to JPPS, and wish her good health, enjoyment, and nachas from her family, as she embarks on a well-deserved retirement.

As the parent of one of Mindy’s former students, I can attest to her excellent work in the classroom.

Good luck Mindy!

Teachers are heroes too... We always think of firemen, soldiers and policemen as heroes without thinking of the greatest heroes among us. Teachers face each day selflessly giving of themselves to impart their knowledge to the next generation. Their only reward lies in their students successes and their students contribution to their society. Mindy is just such a hero. She dedicated herself to her students for over 30 years and in the process taught thousands of kids the necessities of living and learning. We, the parents of JPPS bestow on her our great gratitude. While we sadly hear that she will now hang up her chalks and erasers we urge Mindy to be unbelievably proud of her great accomplishment in raising the future leaders of our community. We will miss you Mindy, our kids will miss you. Bravo

Mindy was a fabulous mentor to me when I was a 1st year teacher at JPPS in 1986.

Mazel Tov to a great lady!
