Welcoming New Teachers into the Professional Culture of Jewish Day Schools

By Cindy Dolgin

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), 2002

The author asserts that the voice of the teacher has historically been muted in communal decision-making on Jewish education, and seeks to give voice to recently-hired teachers. She suggests increasing teacher retention with professional development. This would include mentoring as part of a broader induction program, explicit training for mentors, scheduled time for collaborative planning, non-evaluative observation cycles, and compensation for the mentor's time.
