Adolescent Education

Madrichim: Teen Teacher Training Program

For students entering Grades 8 and 9

Madrichim is a full school-year commitment that may lead to the opportunity to become a member of our Youth and Family Education teaching teams. Madrichim meets every week and regular attendance is expected.

Madrichim explore what makes good teaching: child development and age-appropriate activities, lesson planning, teaching Hebrew, learning styles, teaching techniques, and classroom management. They observe teachers and students and discuss their observations and they meet with the art and music specialists to learn to assist and teach in these areas.

Madrichim participants must be enrolled in The Emanu-El Fellowship Program. We strongly believe that to be a good teacher, one must be a continuous learner.
