Executive Functioning in the Religious School Classroom
October 25, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$18
What happens when students struggle with planning, focusing attention, remembering instructions, juggling multiple tasks? How can part time, supplemental school teachers build in the supports that students need to be be successful in our classrooms even when those students face executive functioning challenges?
This one-hour Zoom workshop is part of Gateways’ series of “Introduction to Neurodiversity” drop-in sessions for religious school educators. Participants can expect to gain an understanding of each topic, explore how the relevant diagnosis will present in a religious school setting, and leave with three concrete strategies to bring back to their classrooms.
Presenter Sandy Gold is Gateways’ Director of Professional Development and Consultation, who brings over 26 years of professional educational experience to her role. She began her career in Jewish education at the Rashi School as both a classroom teacher and a learning specialist and has since worked as a special education consultant in religious school settings. Sandy taught for nine years at the college level, teaching both undergraduates and post baccalaureate students working towards certification. Sandy currently teaches in the graduate school of Special Education at Hebrew College and teaches for Framingham State’s on-line graduate program and their professional development program. Sandy holds a B.A. from Tufts University in Social Psychology, an M.A. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from NYU, and an M.Ed. in Special Education from Boston University.
Workshop cost is $18 per person for schools within the CJP catchment area, and $36 per person for schools beyond the Boston area.
