“I’m really loving havruta learning. I didn’t think that I would at first, and even tried to find crafty ways to work on my own. (That only lasted about 10 minutes; then teachers found me in the corner by myself.) This type of learning challenges me and forces me to think in a new way. I have a different havruta for each class, and I find that I enjoy working with each person for a different reason. Some are patient. Some keep me focused. Some inspire me to think differently. Some I like to argue with. These are all good things, and I’m grateful to have found partners who bring out the best in my learning.”
