DeLeT Day School Teachers for a New Generation

Do you love working with young people and their families? Are you ready to develop the skills and connections to apply your knowledge of Judaism, literature, or science in a setting where you can make an impact? Are you brimming with ideas about how to create a better Jewish day school experience?

Working with young people and serving the community through Jewish education will lead to a career of fulfilling work and relationships.

As immersive sites for teaching and learning, Jewish day schools are institutions that can shape Jewish hearts, minds, and souls with capacities for responsible, kind and values-driven thinking and action. Our goal is to prepare modern, progressive day school teachers with the tools and experiences to successfully transform children’s lives through learning. DeLeT is the only Jewish teacher credentialing program of its kind serving the West Coast, and our alumni are in high demand.

Our 13-month program fosters the core knowledge, skills, and professional development for teaching.
