Beginning Teacher Network


The primary goal of the Beginning Teacher Network was to nurture new teachers in Jewish day schools during their challenging and exciting first years of teaching and to provide tools to help them develop their professional practice.

Through the Network, we encouraged the development of a community of teacher-leaders across Jewish day schools in the Greater Boston area. The Network also provided an opportunity for experienced teachers to share their expertise and continue their own professional development.

The Beginning Teacher Network was open to first and second year teachers in area Jewish day schools. It met monthly at the Mandel Center for a kosher dinner and lively discussion.
