THE FORCE BEHIND OUR CHEDER
Over the past few years the Cheder has curated a remarkable and superior teaching staff. The teachers are true role models for the children of not only Torah and chassidus but of middos and kindness. The teachers have incorporated creativity and progressive educational techniques into age-old subjects and material. Cheder teachers are constantly learning and growing in order to meet the needs of a young generation and the unique set of challenges they face today. The Cheder staff are known for their warmth, love, devotion, and the individual attention they have managed to provide for every child, both emotionally and scholastically. Cheder staff make themselves readily available to work with the parent body in individual and group capacities. As parents often say of Cheder staff, “there is always someone to talk to and someone who will listen”. Parents of Cheder students value this close and personal connection to the teachers that they are able to cultivate and utilize to maximize their child’s school experience.
To be a teacher in Cheder Lubavitch Morristown is to be an inspired person; inspired by the Rebbe's message of Chinuch, inspired by the belief that every child is an individual world with infinite potential and promise.
