Dale Cooperman, M.A., Ed. Spec.

Director of Early Childhood Education

​Dale Sides Cooperman earned multiple degrees at Herbert H. Lehman College in NY and the University of New Mexico, culminating with the degree of distinction as Education Specialist.

She began her journey in Jewish education with her own children, and since 1985, she has worked with Jewish children of all ages. Dale has enjoyed teaching kindergartners, and sixth and eighth graders, right here at Congregation Albert since 2000.  

​Since 2009, Dale has been the Director of the Congregation Albert Early Childhood Center.  Under her leadership and guidance, Dale has achieved the 5 Star level of accreditation and created a community of learners that nurtures our youngest learners and their families.

Dale continues to be a mentor teacher, working with CNM in the training of aspiring early childhood educators.

As nationally recognized authors, Dale and colleague Idie Benjamin have written “Drops of Honey,” an interactive and fun Big Book series and curriculum for young learners, their families and their teachers.

Dale has also co-authored more than 27 articles for Jewish educators, and continues to present at conferences, sharing her joy and passion in the education of young children.

In 2014, Dale was nominated for and was a finalist for the coveted Covenant Award.

Married to her husband since 1971, she’s a proud mom to two happily married children, and a joyful “Mimi” to her 4 precocious and adored grandchildren. And let’s not forget her two rescued Boston terriers, Penelope and Izadora Duncan, who help Dale keep busy and active!

Dale is continually guided by the tenet of leaving the world better than how she found it.
