Mrs. Cary Reichardt

Mrs. Reichardt teaches American History, World History and Holocaust Studies. Her commitment to the integration of literature and art into the history curriculum are a testament to TABC’s philosophy of interdisciplinary instruction. As chair of the History department, she is responsible for organizing the many field trips and programs related to her discipline. Students at TABC have been privileged to have classroom visits and presentations from various speakers, including guest lecturers in Art History, anthropologists specializing in Native American Studies, attorneys from the New Jersey Bar Association Speakers' Bureau, journalists, and many Holocaust survivors. Students in Mrs. Reichardt’s Holocaust Studies classes have submitted winning entries in the David Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies political “Cartoon Contest” for Holocaust awareness, the JCC Abe Oster Holocaust Memorial contest, and the annual contest sponsored by the Holocaust Resource and Study Center of Rockland County. Mrs. Reichardt also initiated a monthly program for these students with Café Europa, a Holocaust survivors support group, where the students are able to interact with survivors in addition to learning from them.  She holds a BA in both Education and Sociology, an MS in Special Education and certification in Jewish Communal Services.
