Mrs. Kar's Hebrew vocabulary lesson is projected from a TV screen.

they absolutely love to go to
the computer room."
Mrs. Kar said using the
computer was a natural for
her students since many of
them were "computer-
minded," having had com-
puter experience at home or
at school.
First and third grades are
her favorites to teach because
she "had a good year in first
grade" and by third grade,
children are mature enough
to participate in disucssions.
She also prefers teaching in
Jewish schools rather than
public school, where she did
her student teaching. "I
always wanted to teach
Hebrew to Jewish children, "
she said. "That's where I feel
I'm doing the most good."
Although she receives
praise from parents and
students, she doesn't feel she's
a standout among teachers.
What she believes
distinguishes her from other
Jewish educators is her
philosophy toward her
students. "I look for a sense
of humor, and I'm careful
about their self-esteem."

Mrs. Kar said she would
like to change the way
Hebrew is taught in the after-
noon schools. Rather than
teaching Hebrew for
Hebrew's sake, she would
rather see the teaching of
Torah, where learning
Hebrew is a by-product. "We
have to do something perti-
nent. It's better for them to
learn to live as Jews."

She, too, would like to study
more Torah. "I would like to
make myself more well-
rounded," she said.
She's grateful that the
Schochet award was created
to honor Jewish teachers
because she feels they don't
get enough recognition.
"Teachers don't get enough
pats on the back," she said.
"We have to give them to each
other." At the same time, the
award makes her "feel great."
"I know I'm a good teacher,"
she said. "I wanted to be a
perfect teacher, but I realized
I only have to be a good
teacher. I like what I do. I
wouldn't be in education if I
didn't."



Education Expert Sees
Jewish Teacher Shortage

As the rapid increase in
enrollment in Jewish day
schools in this country con-
tinues, the serious shortage of
good Torah tethers soon will
become acute, warns Rabbi
Yitzchak Handel, director of
Yeshiva University's David J.
Azrieli Graduate Institute of
Jewish Education and
Administration.
Low teacher salaries and
benefits discourage many of
the most capable young peo-
ple from studying for the pro-
fession, Dr. Handel said. He
noted that most schools are
unable to raise salaries to
adequate levels because they

have to operate primarily on
income from tuition.
"Many Jewish communities
have given top priority to sup-
port of Torah education in
principle, but communities
also must take steps now to
provide solid financial sup-
port for salaries, benefits, and
scholarships at all levels, in-
cluding graduate schools," he
added.

The most recent North
American census (1983) show-
ed 372,407 students enrolled
in the United States and
Canadian Jewish day and
afternoon schools, an increase
