This is a must read for all those concerned with the future of the Jewish educational endeavor.
“Who will be the next generation of Jewish educators? How will we train them? What should they know? How early should the Jewish community invest in encouraging young people to enter the field?”
“Dr. Richard and Elaine Solomon’s Toolbox For Teachers and Mentors provides a step-by-step guide for the seven levels of professional development from high school student aide up through the career ladder to master teacher. This is a must read for all those concerned with the future of the Jewish educational endeavor. There aren’t enough students in degree programs to fill all the staff positions that are or will become vacant. This book is hands-on, practical, and appropriate for most educational settings. It’s a fresh approach to an old persistent problem and one that merits our consideration.”
