Manhattan Senior Educator Innovators
About this Network:
This is a group of primarily Manhattan veteran directors/senior educators, who have been meeting together for several years. They have developed a strong collegial connection and seek to inspire each other to continue to grow as professionals while also growing the field. They work together in our peer group and through an online thread and are committed to responding to each other’s professional needs regularly. They meet at each other's congregations and bring dilemmas, successes, resources, issues and questions and facilitate their own section of the meeting. They have supported each other’s growth by helping to move each other’s personal goals forward.
This network is for senior educators who are part of their congregations' senior leadership teams and who have full-time educators reporting to them. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept additional members at this time. If you have any questions, please contact Suri Jacknis.
