vision for incorporating technology
into the curriculum"
Recent graduate Dan Thibodeau
said, "David connected really well
with the students. He came to sup-
port us at everything — even the
senior prank!"
Feldman, who has taught at the
University Of Chicago Lab School
as well as having held headmas-
ter positions in Connecticut and
Kalamazoo, has a unique and
insightful take on the challenges
that Roeper's "gifted students" face.
"These young people are often
misunderstood as many people
don't realize that IQ is more than a
number" he said. "They are more
focused and more intense than oth-
ers their age. Their vocabulary is
more vast. The bottom line is that
gifted children learn more easily
when around others like them"
Roeper School has an enrollment
of approximately 560 students,
with an equal split down gender
lines. While tuition can range from
$16,000 to $24,000 per year, more
than a third of Roeper's students
are on some sort of scholarship. In
fact, Roeper provided more than
$2.5 million in scholarships to its
students during the 2012-2013
school year.
As a newcomer to Metro Detroit,
Feldman has an interesting per-
spective on what can be done to
assist the city of Detroit in general
and the schools
specifically.
"For Detroit
Public Schools
to get better,
barriers must
be broken
down" he said.
"Roeper School
would like to
David Feldman
help through
partnerships
and will con-
tinue to step up as community
leaders. Simply throwing money
at fixing the schools will not work.
Smaller class sizes and parental
involvement are key to the success
for all of our children:'
Feldman says he feels certain "a
renaissance is coming to Detroit
and the evidence of that renais-
sance is plain to see. My wife and
I are excited to be living here and
have become active members of the
community:'
He and Elayne live in Royal Oak.
He has two stepdaughters.
