Noa Russ Headshot

Noa has been engaged in education for over 20 years, believing in constant learning, collaborations, engagement, and, more than all, in people.

For the past three years, Noa has been a member of TIES team of global consultants, managing the relationship and activities of TIES in Israel.

Prior to that, she led the STEM education in the Valley of Springs Regional Council in Israel, developing and mentoring the teaching staff, school principals, and education leaders. In addition, Noa led and developed a unique program for youth on the verge of dropping out, centered on active learning in an education-oriented makers-space, combining personal and group support for their emotional and mental needs. That program was granted the “Ashalim” prize for educational innovation. Noa also worked for a decade in the Branco-Weiss school network, first as a high school teacher and a member of the school’s leading team and then as the leader of the social field in the school network. In that role, she guided and mentored the social coordinators in the network’s schools and was a member of the network’s development team. Noa has a B.Ed. in democratic education with a teaching certificate and an M.A. in Educational Policies from Tel Aviv University.
Today, Noa lives with her spouse and three children in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA. She loves hiking and rowing to enjoy the beauty of nature.
