Exploring the Supervisory Experiences of Non-Classroom, Jewish Youth Educators
Drawing on the extensive body of supervision literature in clinical, educational, and management settings, this study examined, from a developmental perspective, what non-classroom, Jewish youth educators expect from, as well as how they describe interactional, contextual and dynamic elements of their current supervisory experiences. Variables explored in this research included, but were not limited to respondent background and experience, frequency and consistency of supervision, overall supervisor contact, support, availability, and the extent to which communication of expectations is clear, realistic, and ongoing.
Despite research that illustrates the transformational influence non-classroom, Jewish youth education programs have had on the identity of Jewish teenagers, there is virtually no literature about the professional experiences of those that develop and implement the programs themselves. In consideration of the widely recognized personnel challenges facing the Jewish educational establishment, the lack of research regarding the supervision experiences of non-classroom, Jewish youth educators, and combined with extensive literature about the importance of supervision and its relationship to job performance, job-satisfaction, and turnover, this study explores what non-classroom, Jewish youth educators expect from as well as how they define, perceive, and reflect upon their supervisory experience. In this dissertation, the author explores these questions and advocates for the use of different research methodologies with which to explore the supervisory experiences of non-classroom, Jewish youth educators in the future.
