Our Principal at the Prizmah Conference

Wednesday, 20 March, 2019 - 2:28 pm

At The Hebrew Academy, we pride ourselves on continuing education for all of our staff to stay at the forefront of education and learning. We value the professional development of our staff to learn new ways to incorporate ideas and tackle challenges in the classrooms so our students can get the very best of our teachers, the environment and the general and Judaic material we are teaching.

Our principal, Dr. Bryn Harari, attended the National Conference of the Prizmah Center for Jewish Day Schools last week. Over 1,000 professionals came from North and South America to learn together for 3 days about current and upcoming educational trends and initiatives.

The conference covered initiatives like Project Based Learning, Universal Design for Learning, relationship-based teaching, individualized education, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). All of these have been rolled out throughout the school in the past few years. Showing we are on the forefront of educational trends for the coming generation of learners.

Dr. Harari says, “I learned even more about the importance of these trends for brain development and education in the coming century, and heard about current initiatives and resources available to schools.”

“I was also very proud to be able to contribute to the discussions about implementation of these programs at The Hebrew Academy. I came away feeling inspired and affirmed that we are really at the cutting edge, leading the profession and the next generation of leaders in the most current and recognized approaches to education, teaching and learning.”
