Debbie Beideman

ECC Director


Before coming to Congregation Beth El, Debbie worked in the South Jersey area for over 30 years in public education. She began her career as a Preschool Teacher, then earned a Master's Degree from West Chester University and served as a Speech Pathologist in the schools while also running a private practice. Debbie continued her education and earned a second Master's Degree from Rowan University in Educational Leadership and further pursued Supervisor, Principal, and Superintendent's Licensure. Most recently Debbie has earned an Advanced Human Resources Strategic Management Certification from Cornell University.

Debbie led her team through the Grow NJ Kids state-sponsored initiative, which is designed to raise the quality of child care and early learning throughout New Jersey. The program, for which she was the Director, scored the first and still only 5-Star Rating. Her passion for her work with our children and families will be an asset to our Early Childhood program.
