Leila Kibel
Judaics Curriculum Director of Lower Elementary & Preprimary; Lead Judaics Teacher


Mrs. Leila Kibel is a lead Judaics teacher in the Lower Elementary classroom at OTC. She received her teacher’s certificate from Beth Jacob of Jerusalem Teaching Seminary, and completed her Bachelor’s degree through Maalot Yerushalayim. Mrs. Kibel completed her Masters of Educational Administration at Xavier University and taught math and science at Bais Yaakov of Indiana, RITSS High School, Cincinnati Hebrew Day School, and Rockwern Academy. She and her husband both grew up in Cincinnati, so it is no surprise that they decided to settle here 11 years ago. They have 7 wonderful children, three of whom are part of our OTC student body! What she loves the most about chinuch al pi Darko is the ability to get to know her students individually, help them focus on their strengths to bring out their true potential and personal achrayus (responsibility) in learning.
