The YCQ faculty orientation took place from September 1 through September 3 and set an exciting tone to begin the new school year. On day one, Dr. Joel Wein, YCQ President, delivered greetings to the faculty on behalf of the board. Rabbi Paysach Krohn also delivered words of inspiration to the faculty. Rabbi Landsman and Dr. Asher also led the faculty in sessions on processing the pandemic, preparing for the beginning of school, and Social Emotional Learning. On the second day, Mrs. Ora Verstandig led a session on enhancing Zoom skills. Finally, on the third day, Mrs. Rachel Bayar, esq., Managing Director of T&M Protection Resources, LLC, spoke to the faculty on safety standards and protocols. A representative from Global Security also spoke to the faculty about school safety protocols. The professional development program was informative and educational, which will hopefully make this year a true success! We are looking forward to an exciting school year!
