“If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” This wise and intuitive statement was spoken by none other than one of the fathers of education, John Dewey. We are all educators. Whether you spend the lion’s share of your time planning and executing traditional education programs, youth group programs, or simply spending time with your families, we are all constantly teaching each other. As Jewish Educators, we believe that we should lead by example in every facet of our lives. This resonated with me when I was asked to participate this year in a joint venture offered by NFTY-PAR and Camp Harlam.
