Madrichim-In-Training (MIT) Workshop (Grade 8)
Faculty: Hannah (Richman) Kearney
Meets: Sundays, 11:00-12:30 PM
Open to: Grade 8*
Do you love working with young children? Are you creative, friendly, organized and a little bit silly? If you answered “yes,” the TBE Madrichim-in-Training Workshop is for you! Together with your fellow MIT classmates, you’ll spend the first half of the year learning all about child development, lesson planning, helping kids with special needs---everything you need to know to be an awesome Jewish role model for TBE kids. Then, you’ll spend the rest of the year observing Limud and Beit Midrash classes in action, discussing what you observe, learning about managing special situations in the classroom, and deciding what grade you’d like to work in the following year. By the end of this year, you’ll be prepared to assist our Limud, Beit Midrash and BM3T teachers in their classrooms. Get ready for an exciting year that will give you the skills you need and a community of great friends who love teaching as much as you do!
*If you are in 9th-12th grade and are interested in being a madrich/a, but have not taken the MIT Workshop in the past, please contact Hannah Richman to learn how to get involved!
