Source JCDSPROVIDENCE – Jamie Faith Woods, the fifth grade general studies teacher at the Jewish Community Day School (JCDS), spoke at the first North American Jewish Day School Conference about Professional Learning Communities (PLC). The conference was held in mid-January in Teaneck, N.J.

The first unified educational conference with participants from a wide range of Jewish day schools across the U.S. and Canada drew some 600 Jewish educators, including Irene Rudnick, assistant head of the JCDS.

Woods discussed the creation and evolution of our Professional Learning Community (PLC) group. Last year, Woods organized a small group of JCDS teachers who met monthly and on their own time, with these goals:

• To discuss problems of teaching practice in a serious and structured environment.

• To make their practices public.

• To gain insight from their colleagues.

This year, the PLC has evolved and many JCDS teachers, general and Judaic studies and others, collaborate monthly to learn from one another and to become more reflective practitioners. It is the children, wrote Woods, “who will prosper from our growth as teachers.”
