Ever wonder how your teachers get so smart? Well, we can’t take all the credit, but BJE does provide ongoing professional development opportunities for teachers in day schools, early childhood and part-time Jewish schools. Read on for more information about some of the varied programs available to teachers in Jewish schools just this fall!
The Hebrew Language Proficiency Project, a joint initiative between BJE and Hebrew at the Center, empowers teachers to more effectively teach their students Hebrew.? Educators enhance their skills to maximize student learning, ignite a passion for Hebrew in students and elevate the status of Hebrew in the community. Each year of the Project includes a series of distance and in-city workshops and mentoring provided by Hebrew at the Center staff.
"Thank you to BJE and PEJE for partnering to bring our schools together in order to collaborate on recruitment and retention. It is this kind of collaboration which helps sustain our schools and keep our programs dynamic." Glenda Dragin, Temple Israel of Hollywood
