Representing each of the four day schools in the federation’s catchment area were the deans who lead the faculty and professional development efforts in the respective organizations.

Leading the JEC’s program was Minna Heilpern, director of professional development, and she greeted her guests with a welcome breakfast and tables set to maximize collaboration and dialogue.

The group meets monthly in an effort to collaboratively plan and provide inspiring professional development opportunities for educators in Greater MetroWest’s four day schools. To date, faculty at the JEC have taken advantage of an ever-increasing menu of opportunities that has translated into improved and increased productivity, creativity and innovation both in and out of the classroom.
