Thank you Deb for your leadership and persistence in bringing our interest forums together and pioneering this nifty collaboration! It was your vision that made it happen. It is really a wonderfully colorful illustration of how folks and interest forums with varying perspectives can work together and share unifying moments, such as where science, play and spirituality flow together.

{Deb} bridged spirituality and STEAM, often something I have difficulty doing. I get the STEAM, but miss the spirituality, an innovative approach.

We are most appreciative of the contribution you made to the day, and the benefits that the students of those in attendance will derive from your teaching.

I am so glad that you will be the Jewish support person for the JCC. Your passion and expertise will be so inspiring for the staff and children.

Deb is the first person I contact with any questions about how very young children learn concepts. Her in-depth knowledge and experience is always a source of guidance for me and my work in science education.

Marlene Hilkowitz, STEM Preservice Teacher Development

I had been looking forward to your course since beginning my Master’s degree one year ago. Through thought-provoking questions, informative articles, and enlightening discussions, you’ve really challenged me to think about my position as an infant-toddler professional in new ways. And you’ve changed the way I see infant development and learning. Thank you so much for making this course such a valuable part of my education and of my ongoing work.  I will be reflecting on your guidance for a long time to come.

Sandra, graduate student

Thank you for your wonderful presentation at the BJE event. I enjoyed listening to you and felt incredibly inspired by you. I too believe that as teachers we are facilitators and the moment we understand that, we open an entire realm of possibilities for our children.

Farnaz Hazany, MS, MFTI

Such a great lecture!  It’s so nice at the beginning of the year to recenter oneself on the basics of the relationship between child and teacher.

Workshop participant, August 2013

Very interesting and refreshing to learn about the developmental growth of children from a spiritual point of view. Thank you!

Attendee, 2015 BJE Early Childhood Institute

We loved Deb Schein! Her sessions were well organized; she knows her subject deeply and facilitated a cross-cultural environment that encouraged everyone to learn and feel capable to implement their learning in the classroom.
