Touro L.A.: Teaching Teachers

West-Coast-logo

In a creative initiative, Touro College Los Angeles’s new education concentration for working teachers is designed to meet the professional development needs of teachers in the Greater Los Angeles area by providing education courses each semester.

This fall TCLA will offer EDU 311: Principles of Early Childhood, beginning September 12 at Ohr Hachaim Academy, and PSY 203: Child Growth and Development, starting September 2 at the Cheder of Los Angeles. Students can earn three credits per course while learning from an experienced instructor.

According to Tamar Andrews, Ed.D., education instructor at TCLA and preschool director at Temple Isaiah, “The field of early childhood education is quickly moving up the ranks as a legitimate profession. Teachers, as the professional practitioners, must welcome this opportunity for recognition and rise to the challenge by educating themselves, as do practitioners in other fields. We will only become equals to lawyers, doctors and others when we, ourselves, are willing to go beyond the minimal requirements of licensing and towards ‘professional.’ ”

To reduce educators’ financial burdens, TCLA is offering a 50 percent tuition discount to teachers. For more information about this program, call Samira Miller at 323-822-9700 x 85155, or e-mail samira.miller@gmail.com.
