As a consultant, she developed a law-related education curriculum for an elementary school and an American History through Constitution Law curriculum for District 26 middle schools.

Mr. Bearak praised Mrs. Nadel's predecessor, Anne Lupkin, for her exemplary leadership and work. "With Anne Lupkin as our Executive Director, the Council expanded its programs, increased participation by its member organizations and introduced the year-old neighborhood development program. The Samuel Field Y is fortunate to have Anne on its professional staff." Mrs. Lupkin will coordinate adult education programming at the Y. In this position, she will continue to work with the Council.
