Shabbat with Dr. Laz

  • Dr. Laz is a world famous educator, winning the 2007 Arts Teacher of the Year award for the Broward County Public Schools (nation's 5th largest district) and the Teacher of the Year award from NY State in 1981 for his rather unorthodox, yet highly acclaimed techniques for reaching students with special needs. Earning a PhD in Educational Research & Evaluation, a master’s degree in learning & behavioral disorders, and two undergraduate degrees, including a Bachelor of Divinity, and more than 27 years in both private & public education – as both an administrator and teacher, he’s done it all! He has directed his own alternative high school program and currently teaches graduate level courses in research.

    Dr. Laz has written four books: Sharing Turf, Ammunition: Battling the Elements, and the best-seller Skullcaps ‘N Switchblades – which chronicles his teaching years in an all-Black, inner-city school in Buffalo, NY, where he subsequently won "Teacher of the Year" for his outstanding work with his special education class. Skullcaps and Switchblades is now under consideration for a major motion picture and has been called "a fun & inspiring read," and “one that sets Black/Jewish relations on the right path.”
