Teachers' Aide

Continued from preceding page

dividually work with
teachers."
Sometimes teachers have
difficulty coming to a supe-
rior and admitting they need
help in an area, Ms. Wohl
said. "They can come to us
and say I need help and work
with our staff' ' in a confiden-
tial atmosphere.
"But what we really want
to be is a center without
walls," she said. "We see
ourselves working not just
within here, but we will be
going out to schools. We
want to take our show on the
road."
Ms. Silberg Loebl and Ms.
Wohl intend to conduct
teacher training workshops
for various organizations
such as the one scheduled for
the Beth Abraham Hillel
Moses teaching staff. They
also want to reach out to the
larger educational commun-
ity. In April, the Resource
Center will bring Dr. Shirley
Raines, author of Story
Stretchers for pre-school and
kindergarten teachers inter-
ested in learning how to be
better storytellers.
Ms. Silberg Loebl and Ms.
Wohl are also working on
developing programs for
Jewish educators. This year,
they created the CHAI pro-
gram which brings parents
of fifth-grade students at
Adat Shalom into the Sun-
day classroom. Although it
began on a limited basis,
they hope to make it a com-
munity-wide program.
While the pair are busy
developing programs, con-
ducting workshops, helping
individual teachers and col-
lecting more materials for
the center, they also want
input from educators, Ms.
Silberg Loebl said. They en-
courage local teachers to
contribute their own
creative educational ideas to
the Resource Center.
Mrs. Greenfield and Mrs.
Ziffer, who teaches third
grade at Akiva and courses
at the Jewish Community
High School, recently sub-
mitted a morning prayer
game to the Resource
Center. In the game,
students, using magnets,
must put the morning
prayers in the davening
order.
"What we have to do is
capitalize on their strengths.
Everyone has strengths,"
Ms. Silberg Loebl said.
"This is not a one time
service," Ms. Silberg Loebl
said about the Resource
Center. "We really want to
help educators in their pro-
fessional growth. We want to
help people realize their
potential."
"If people feel they are get-

ting the support they need
then it will be a success,"
Ms. Wohl said. "We want to
give educators every oppor-
tunity to excel."
Robert Lask, president of
the Detroit Jewish
Educators Council, called
the center an important step
in Jewish education, adding
"I think it should have been
done a long time ago."
"I think teachers should
use it," he said. "What we
need to do is start a cam-
paign. If we don't talk about
it, educators won't use it. It's
too good to waste it." ❑
