Professional Development


Etgar Yesodi is more than a curriculum. In addition to containing all of the curricular materials that teachers and students need, we provide ongoing professional development. We created a series of webinars for education directors and teachers. These webinars are designed to support educators as they introduce the new curriculum to their students and to enhance their skills. Webinars are delivered using Zoom and require that participants have a computer to see the web conference materials and computer audio system (VoIP) to hear the web conference.

Lonna Picker and Shira Hammer are working as our Etgar Teacher Educator and will host all trainings. Should education directors or teachers have questions between sessions, they may contact Lonna or Shira for answers.
