Teacher of the Year

The Rafi Schwartz Religious School is proud to announce our Teacher of the Year, Chloe Laverson!

Chloe Laverson is a graduate of the University of Utah, where she studied Strategic Communications with a minor in Musical Theatre. She's originally from San Diego, CA, and is a proud Sephardic, French-American Jew. During her time at the University of Utah, she became Hillel for Utah's President after serving as the Vice President of Communications for two years. She interned with Hillel International's Marketing team from summer 2019 to spring 2020. Also, she served as Pi Beta Phi, Utah Alpha's Vice President of Communications, and then became Vice President of Marketing for the University of Utah’s Panhellenic Council in 2020.

Chloe currently works as Hillel International's social media associate and will be relocating to Washington, DC, in the fall of 2021. Outside of her career, Chloe remains an active alumnae member of her sorority, Pi Beta Phi. Chloe is a content creator and freelance writer––publishing multiple pieces with the Jewish online magazine Hey Alma, where she's written about the Jewish experience in Utah, Sephardic Jewry, and Jewish celebrities. Throughout her time at Congregation Kol Ami, Chloe has taught Sunday enrichment, 7th grade Judaic Studies, and Tefila. 

"My tenure at Congregation Kol Ami has inspired me—my 7th-grade students bring a smile to my face every week. I've loved working with my students and helping them develop and discover their own unique Jewish identities—you've taught me as much as I've taught you, and I'll miss you so much. I'm sad to be leaving, but I will carry a piece of Kol Ami with me wherever I go. I love this community with all my heart. Thank you for everything! L'hitraot!"  —Chloe Laverson

We wish Chloe much happiness, success, and health as she begins the next chapter of her life. Todah Rabbah, Chloe! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to the Rafi Schwartz Religious School and Congregation Kol Ami!
