Andrea Kasper, MJEd`07, Head of School at Solomon Schecter Day School of Greater Hartford, CT

In my experience over the years as a teacher and head of a Jewish Day School, I can attest to the value of hiring educators with a Masters of Jewish Education. Not only do teachers with a Hebrew College MJEd have a solid understanding of educational theories and practice, but they also bring with them a commitment to social justice, to building meaningful, sustainable, and loving communities of learners, and to honoring both tradition and innovation. This value-based approach to education is woven into the DNA of the MJEd program.
