Welcome to The Toronto Teachers' Center of Torah Umesorah
The Toronto Teachers' Center of Torah Umesorah is a not for profit organization committed to facilitating educational excellence by assisting teachers, schools, and ultimately students, realize their full potential. Our goal is to help every student succeed by providing their teachers with innovative resources, equipment, professional development and access to state of the art technology. A visit to the Teachers' Center leaves every educator with a true feeling of being supported in their critical mission to educate and nurture our children.
The Center provides educators with the opportunity to attend many lectures and workshops on a broad range of topics and grade levels. Among the topics presented were "Coping with Stress and Anxiety in the Classroom", "Fostering Phonemic Awareness" and a Hebrew Literacy Training Course. The Toronto Teachers' Center of Torah Umesorah also coordinated networking sessions, bringing together teachers of the same grade levels from various schools to discuss strategies and share effective teaching methods. The Center has run courses in beginner, intermediate and advanced levels of Microsoft Word and offered SMARTboard training to over 175 teachers to date. Future plans include courses in all of the above with additional courses in Photoshop and Powerpoint.
Since opening in January 2011, we have logged over 5,000 teacher visits, a testimony to the necessity of this unique resource.
