Temple Emunah takes great pride in the educators who make up their Kindergarten through Seventh Grade program faculty. These individuals come to us with backgrounds in education, experience, a passion for Judaism and a willingness to share themselves with their students.
Abraham Joshua Heschel stated, “What we need more than anything else is not textbooks but textpeople. It is the personality of the teacher which is the text that the pupils read; the text that they will never forget.” According to educator, Joseph Schwab, “robust learning necessarily involves teachers thinking about how they might draw their students into an interpersonal connection, for that connection builds the foundation of a learning relationship. The moment I realized my students were more interested in me than the subject, I discovered the way in which I could make this fact a stepping stone, rather than a stumbling block.”
