[The Adventurous Teacher] Episode 6: Building Relationships – Co-Teacher

The Adventurous Teacher] Episode 5]: What is TALMA?

https://audio.simplecast.com/a7459c8c.mp3 Download The MP3 Why does Talma exist? In this episode we spoke with the people who help to make Talma happen: foundation leaders, leaders of nonprofits, organizers and directors and leaders in education. These aren’t people who participate in Talma, or personally benefit from it and who so deeply believe in the mission of this program that they’re willing to devote their time, energy and, in some cases, finances, just so that other people--you, teachers from around the world, and thousands of children around the nation of Israel--can reap the benefit. That’s why, when we ask the question “why does Talma exist”, these are the folks we need to ask. It exists because of them.

The Adventurous Teacher] Episode 4: A Day in the Life]

https://audio.simplecast.com/270483a8.mp3 Download The MP3 Listen to the 4th episode as we explore the differences that separate a day in the life of TALMA teachers in the Israeli classroom versus their classrooms ‘back home.’ The first day that TALMA teachers enter their classrooms in Israel often involves some combination of excitement, anxiety, and culture shock…feelings typical of anyone embarking on a new adventure. Things that should be familiar – recess, instructional time, teacher-student interactions – suddenly can feel foreign and overwhelming. Tried and true lessons that always worked in the past somehow don’t work quite the same way – and your jokes that always get a laugh… well, with the language barrier, the punch lines fall flat. The journey, then, is in the process of learning to adjust to the environment, to the students, and to the culture. Welcome, to a day in the life of a TALMA teacher…

The Adventurous Teacher] Episode 3 : Serving With A Purpose]

https://audio.simplecast.com/07eb41c0.mp3 Download The MP3 Listen to the 3rd episode as we dive into the 'why' that motivates TALMA teachers to give up the freedom of their summer vacation for a challenging but rewarding summer of teaching and service in Israel. Summer vacation is the time of year when parents realize just how underpaid teachers really are and teachers have a well-earned opportunity to step away from the classroom, reboot, recharge, and have some 'adult time.' Why then do hundreds of teachers each summer make the choice to give up their summer vacation and join The TALMA Fellowship for a challenging summer of service in low-income communities in the Israeli periphery? In this episode, we speak with nine teachers who explain their mission, their sacrifice, and why they are willing to volunteer their time and talents (for a job usually considered underpaid in the first place!) to provide educational opportunity to underserved children in Israel.
