It has only been a month since we launched the Bridge to the Future initiative, and already so much has started! I wanted to use this opportunity to update on some of the latest happenings around campus:
All of our teachers are taking a professional development workshop on Differentiation over the course of the spring, led by Tehiyah alum and founder of Rosh Pinah, Elana Naftalin Kelman.
