Mrs. Billet started off as a college professor and ended up switching to Jewish education after going through a very painful time in her life. This episode comes with a trigger warning as we learn about Mrs. Billet's strength overcoming loss of a child, and how she parented and supported her children during that time. One of the most remarkable things about Mrs. Billet is her growth mindset, taking such a tragic event, and using it to propel her to make her life more meaningful. We will discuss a major change in her approach to education because of a line in a book. Mrs. Billet went on to become a teacher and then administrator, having great impact on every institution that she was involved in. It is very clear throughout the episode how knowledgeable and passionate Mrs. Billet is, and how she used her passion to help her students connect to the Torah and Hashem. Mrs. Billet took pride in creating an atmosphere in her home that was open to conversation and a place of trust. Mrs. Rookie Billet is a well known Jewish educator, as well as past rebbetzin of one of the biggest shuls in country, at Young Israel of Woodmere. Mrs. Billet was the Assistant Principal at HALB's high school for girls, SKA for 9 years, the Principal at Ma'ayanot (6 years) and ended her career as Principal in the Shulamith Middle School. After retiring, Mrs. Billet and her husband made Aliyah and I want to give a huge thank you to Mrs. Billet for taking the time our of her trip to new york to see her children and grandchildren, to talk JEDucation. Highlights: "Moving forward, not on" - mentality in dealing with challenges Goal as Jewish Educator Difference between educating High School and Middle School aged children "Do it well or not at all" Parenting advice: Being authentic when talking to children, and creating space for them to talk to you about anything AMAZING idea and mashal on Tefillah Should parents be involved in their children's peer groups? Change of her approach over the years Most proud aspect after years as Jewish educator

Bullying is ongoing or has the potential to be repeated; it refers the deliberate physical, social, or psychological harm that can occur in person or online through various digital platforms and devices.

This week's hosts, Connor and Sparsh, invite classmates Samantha and Ananya in for a discussion on all things bullying. The 8th graders give valuable insight on middle school social interactions, citing examples of bullying behavior, stress on self-concept and self-esteem, reasons teens might bully others, how bystanders can have secondary effects, the impact of the Internet and social media, acknowledging trauma in people doing the offense, and recommendations for identifying and dealing with bullying.

Try something for me: think of your favorite movie. Next time you watch it, pause the movie 3 or 4 times and ask yourself "is the hero enjoying themselves right now?" "are they learning or growing?"You will quickly discover that throughout much of the movie, the hero is not actually enjoying himself or herself. But the important thing is that they grow through their challenges. They not only overcome the external problem (the villain, the race, the relationship, etc), but they also overcome their own internal struggles of self-worth and self-efficacy. So why should you be any different? If you have great ambitions. If you want to do great things, then you will have times in your life that will not be fun or comfortable. That is okay. The hero's journey requires that you experience the struggle, and learn or grow from it.And the growth is so valuable, that once you begin learning from your challenges, you will value those challenges for what they are: catalysts for growth. Listen to find out how to shift your mindset to be more healthy, so that you can also grow through your challenges, and become the hero of your own story.to join the Ivy League Challenge, go to TILC.to/waitlistto try out a starter course called Elite College Admissions Made Easy Starter Course, go to this link here.Follow me on Instagram @TheIVYLeagueChallengeand Facebook: TheIVYLeagueChallenge

He served on the Board of education for the Ypsilanti Public Schools from 2006 to 2014. Training in Reading Apprenticeship program in 2015 and in Modeling for Science in 2016 have had the most significant impact on his educational philosophy and practice. Highlights [12:28] David Bates "I find that... Kids are amazingly honest, at least maybe middle school kids are amazingly honest, brutally honest, sometimes even about whether or not they really understand something or they don't. And that, as a teacher, that's your best feedback in terms of where you are in your own instruction, and what direction you need to go in next. " [30:23] David Bates: "the environment that that I'm trying to create is an environment where students walk in and bring their curiosity with them" [31:43] David Bates: "our goal really needs to be not to find out who the smartest kid is in the classroom. But our goal really needs to help everybody in the classroom be the smartest kid in the classroom, by sharing our thinking, sharing our questions, encouraging each other, and supporting each other. And that requires building up a very, very high trust environment" Resources Transcript https://sciencemodelingtalks.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/SMT-Ep28-DavidBates-Transcript.pdf (David Transcript) Support this podcast

Thank you Newsstand Studio at 1 Rockefeller Plaza for providing a place for me to record this episode for y'all! No more Brooklyn closet recording!!! Today's guest is my best friend, Sara del Monte, or “Tutti” if you follow her on Instagram. She was on the podcast years ago talking about how to confront unexpected change where she shared all about her pregnancy. You can listen to that here. Recently, I discovered my middle school journal and I have been going through it and reading it. I was sharing my discovery with Tutti and she had recently found hers as well. We decided it would be fun to do a podcast episode where we read our journals and psychoanalyze each other. Kat's Diary // October 13, 1997 “Title: Melrose Hotel Main characters: Eve Davis, the mysterious woman who is head over heels for Richie Stale. Katherine Harris, a young woman who is trying to make it big in the modeling business. Plot: Two roommates who are into partying and catching guys at the clubs come night, but at day they're two women trying to make a career of being hot and sexy models. They've got the looks, the hair, the talk, but do they have the moves? Come see On the Hot.” Let's unpack that... Tutti and I talk about how this may or may not have been me prophesying our future life in New York City. Tutti's Diary // February 14, 1999 “Yesterday was my volleyball inauguration. There were so many people. It was raining so much and everything was getting wet. But there was a boy there. His name was Antonio… He is so cute and my friend got to be on his team. They're on the blue team and he's number 8. I'm on the red team and I'm number 8. What a coincidence. He's 13 and almost all girls are in love with him, including me. I hope he feels the same for me. Happy Valentine's Day. Update: He has a girlfriend. She's older than him.” Let's unpack that…. Life advice: you don't want to date someone who peaked in high school (or middle school for that matter). Have you peaked yet? We talk about how we feel transformed in adulthood and more confident and comfortable. We talk a bit more about Tutti's pregnancy journey that kind of feels like a peak for so many reasons. I explore the idea that my peak is still coming. Kat's Diary // March 13, 1998 “Women are not equal at all to men. We have to put a stop to this. Women and men could have the same exact jobs and men will still get sometimes thousands of dollars more than women just because they're men. It's disgusting!! It makes me so angry! When I grow up, I'm going to put a stop to all of this nonsense.” Let's unpack that… This is one of many journal entries where injustice had boiled in me. I always thought I was an enneagram 3 but this is making me realize I may have a bit of enneagram 8 in me. I was honestly shocked that I wrote that. I didn't know I was a feminist when I was little. I wonder who it was who taught me about the pay gap. We talk about how this spark in middle school me has translated to my current work in addressing the hard topics. Tutti shares how her benchmark of who she is as a person is her childhood self, who was friendly, outspoken, and free.
