Of Shepherds and Teachers

While taking his sheep out to pasture, young David recognized how the strong sheep would run ahead of the flock and eat the grass, leaving nothing over for the young and elderly animals. What could be done? David created three different pens for the sheep, releasing the lambs and older sheep first to eat, followed by the stronger ones. When G-d saw the attention, love, and care that David showed to each individual sheep, He said, "You will be the King, because you are someone who will consider the specific and unique needs of all your people."
 

As parents and educators, we recognize the uniqueness of each individual. Everyone has something to share, and a way to inspire and change the world. Each child is priceless!

This is the monumental task of an educator, and one we place great emphasis on here at Maimonides - giving each child a personal, meaningful, and relevant education!
