Teaching is often seen as an easy job; just walk into any classroom and start teaching the children, who are eager to learn. If only it were so simple! Unfortunately, throughout North America and especially in the Jewish community, there are many who think these statements are true.
This is why Toolbox for Teachers and Mentors is such an important book for educational leaders in the Jewish community. Beginning with the assumption that becoming a successful teacher is the result of years of training under the close supervision of mentors and guides, the Solomons outline a series of strategies for recruiting and developing teachers from novice high school madrichim to master teachers ready to mentor the next generation.
By incorporating the best thinking from the fields of education and psychology, this book lays out an in-depth approach for preparing our brightest young people to be outstanding teachers in the future.
