Jewish New Teacher Project helps Jewish day schools achieve instructional excellence by increasing teacher and school leader effectiveness, teacher retention and student achievement, and bringing the language of teaching standards, collaboration and professional development into school culture.
By improving teacher and administrator skills through intensive mentoring and coaching along with shared cohort learning and job-embedded instruction, we help schools deliver higher quality Jewish day school education and become institutions of instructional excellence, allowing students to reach their potential. Such students are committed, engaged and inspired in all that they do — personally, within the Jewish community, and in the wider world.
We believe that every Jewish child deserves an excellent education.
We believe that a great teacher can transform a child’s life.
We believe that teachers and school administrators are the most important in-school contributors to student success.
We believe that great teachers and school administrators are made, not born.
We believe in implementing outstanding professional development programs in schools across the entirety of the Jewish community, in a manner respectful to each school’s philosophy and approach.
