Parshat HaChodesh by Rabbi Ilana Goldhaber-Gordon
“When I taught in public schools, I could barely use the restroom once a day.” CBJ’s Inclusion Specialist, Darby Auerbach Morris, revealed this reality to a roomful of religious school teachers at a session she taught for a Special Needs Education conference last Sunday. “That was not a good thing,” she said. No kidding! But Darby’s not alone in that experience. Public school teachers have astoundingly full schedules, as do many workers in our society.
