The MTEI program for graduates creates a collaborative setting in which graduates are supported in their leadership roles by continuing to learn, share, investigate, and serve as critical colleagues both synchronously and asynchronously.

Via interactive online learning opportunities and face-to-face conferences, graduates continue to build both their Jewish and educational subject matter knowledge and pedagogical expertise. In small, interest-based action groups, graduates enter into extended discourse on the application and implementation of these ideas and practices in their respective contexts.

Where Our Graduates Come From

Staying connected
Relationships that last

“MTEI does not stop when you graduate and finish the program. The faculty and students keeps growing, as we support and challenge each other as we bring the MTEI concepts and values back to our home communities.”

Suzanne Mishkin Director of Sager School
Solomon Schechter Day School of Metropolitan Chicago

“To what can I compare my commitment to continual engagement with MTEI? Just like my car needs a regular refill on oil and a tune up every 5000 miles in order to run smoothly, so do I! ¬†Each time I connect with MTEI I come away rejuvenated, refreshed and refocused on my work. ¬†During these MTEI encounters – whether a 60-minute online text study or a 3-day alumni seminar – my mind is filled with innovative ideas, my heart is bolstered with new and renewed relationships, and my soul is grounded in my restored commitment to my work as a Jewish educator.”
