There is no doubt the Alexander Lebenstein Teacher Education Institute (TEI) is the flagship program for educators at the Virginia Holocaust Museum. TEI has been accomplishing its mission to assist educators with their understanding of the Holocaust and genocide for nearly ten years.

“TEI has a ripple effect,” according to Megan Ferenczy, Director of Education, “We are not only reaching and educating the teachers but the thousands of students they will teach during their careers.”

TEI has grown from a weekend workshop to a two-week, multi-component course which focuses on the historical background and pedagogy which link to the Virginia Standards of Learning requirements. View the course page here.
