Professional development for Judaic and general studies teachers
We offer a series of methodology and education courses, seminars and in-service programs for teachers already in the ATT school system as well as for students who are preparing for the field of Jewish education. The courses offered by the department are credited towards meeting the Professional Growth Requirements, the ATT Teacher’s License and the Advanced Teacher’s Certificate.
Our courses feature cutting-edge pedagogical, as well as social, emotional and behavioral methods to empower our teachers to be lifelong learners. Course instructors are local, from the ATT system, as well as renowned national and international speakers. Courses range from one session instructional hours to year-long small group programs.
