Ellen Hechler divides her time

ou have to have a lot
of energy to keep up
with Ellen Hechler.
She may be off to or
planning a math-
ematics conference, ice skat-
ing, singing with the Oak
Park Civic Chorus, going to a
singles activity or working on
a ceramics project.
Hechler, 32, of Southfield,
a teacher in the Detroit Pub-
lic Schools, is very happy
with her lifestyle because it
provides her with the free-
dom to participate in all
kinds of activities and to
travel.
"I'm my own boss. I can
come and go as I please. I can
make my own plans. I have
nobody to account for. I'm
very independent and I run
and I do and I go. I have a lot
of friends that I make plans
with or I just do things on my
own."
In addition to her job,
Hechler is involved in many
groups and volunteer proj-
ects. She is affiliated with the
Young Adult Encounter, a
division of Jewish Marriage
Encounter; volunteers for the
Jewish Welfare Federation's
Young Adult Division and
Allied Jewish Campaign; is a
member of Women's Ameri-
can ORT; presents workshops
for math teachers and is a
proctor for math competi-
tions. She also takes classes

dates. She called the experi-
ence "scary," because unlike
being fixed up with a blind
date, there was no one to tell
her about the potential date
in advance. But, she admit-
ted, she met a lot of men via
the ads.

On the topic of singles ac-
tivities, Hechler recom-
mended that organizations
hold them on nights other
than Saturdays. She said she
felt the Yom Kippur night
dance and the December
party at the Jewish Commu-
nity were the most successful.
She also said the synagogues
and temples should take a
greater role in providing pro-
gams for singles, and rotate
the activities.
A participant in the Shab-
bat Dinner Club of the Com-
munity Network for Jewish
Singles, Hechler suggested
that more dinners be held,
but they should be separated
by age groups.
And what does Ellen
Elissa Hechler prescibe for a
happy single life? "To take a
positive attitude and not to
become desperate in a situa-
tion (meeting Mr. or Miss
Right) where they have no
control, because it's fate. It
really is. It's timing. I'm not
going to say it's in the stars,
but if it's meant to be it's to
be. And always look the best
that you can because you
never know who or where
you're going to meet some-
one." ❑

I--

at Wayne State University,
where she is working on a
doctorate in curriculum de-
velopment.
Her professional affiliations
include the Detroit Area
Council of Teachers of Math-
ematics and the Michigan
Council of Teachers of Math.
A native Detroiter, Hechler
holds a B.S. degree in educa-
tion and M.Ed. degree in
math from WSU. Eventually,
she wants to become a
teacher consultant.
In her spare time, she does
needlepoint, works in
ceramics, plays guitar, sings,
goes to dances, plays, movies
and to cultural activities. She
also likes to travel.
One of her favorite projects
is the annual Channel 56 au-
ction. She has been involved
in the auction for the past 12
years and this year is a board
supervisor.
Hechler sees her volunteer
efforts as a contribution to
the Jewish community. She
figures she spends about a
quarter of her spare time
working on Jewish communal
programs.
Affable and personable,
Hechler said she has no trou-
ble making friends. "I'm very
outgoing and I don't have a
problem meeting people in a
situation where there's a
dance or a party."
Besides going to singles
events, she's also tried The
Jewish News' People Connec-
tor ads to meet potential
