I got two extraordinary phone calls yesterday. The first call came from a Judaic Studies teacher in a major city who was totally FED UP with the teacher's school's efforts to extrinsicly motivate their elementary students to learn. "Why can't we allow their own, intrinsic motivation to guide them?" This teacher is "totally sold on Jewish Montessori." "No need to convince me, I just need to know what to do next."
Are there other teachers out there in the Jewish world like the one mentioned above? If you know any, send them our way. We have a lot of schools searching for teachers. Let me rephrase that: we have A LOT of schools looking for elementary educators. Lots. Really. Pre-school openings also, but openings for MANY elementary level educators.
The other extraordinary call I got yesterday came from parents in a major city in Europe. They are planning to open a new pre-school this fall, 2012, and guess what! They need teachers, too.
You'll notice a new page on our site, under "What We Do," titled Jewish Montessori Job Bank. Please send us your openings!
For information on training programs planning to open their doors this year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
