Aspects of teaching considered more feminine, like nurturance, became emphasized. Goldstein writes that during an era of deep bias against womens intellectual and professional capabilities, the feminization of teaching carried an enormous cost: Teaching became understood less as a career than as a philanthropic vocation or romantic calling. Like other labor performed for altruistic reasons, teachingat least when done by women pulled in scant wages. Gender and pay were part of the same story. Women were allowed into the profession in large part because they could be compensated less than men for the same labor. For some, paltry pay was even a selling point of hiring female teachers. Catharine Beecher, a prominent 19th-century education advocate, touted the proposed savings to taxpayers as one of the benefits of hiring female teachers. Taxpayers certainly got a bargain: In 1905, male elementary teachers earned double what their female colleagues did. Beecher, it turns out, foretold the future of the teaching field: It would go on to become a feminine and meagerly paid occupation. By 1900, teaching was an overwhelmingly female profession, though men would continue to dominate the leadership roles in the field of education. http://richadrianfisher.pdxrwa.org/2016/09/13/some-basic-ideas-on-recognising-critical-factors-in-interview-attire/Now, 76 percent of public-school teachers are womenand teaching remains modestly paid compared to similar jobs.

We studied several verses of Exodus 4: the burning bush. This Torah study group does not look at the weekly Torah portion, but moves slowly through the entire Five Books a few verses at a time. Genesis took seven years, one regular told me. We began by reciting the blessing over Torah study (laasok bedivrei Torah). Many, but not all, follow along in copies of W. Gunther Plauts The Torah: A Modern Commentary, a mainstay of Reform Torah study for many decades. A sizable number also follow along on their phones and iPads. (After all, this is Silicon Valley.) Marder periodically reached for one of the books, reading directly from a wide range of sources and approaches. Her chosen sources ranged from the late Orthodox Israeli commentator Nehama Leibowitz to classical medieval commentator Nachmanides to contemporary Protestant scholar Walter Brueggemann. The overall theme of the morning was Moses reluctance when called upon for a sacred task. We discussed the idea of a vocation and of feeling that one has a calling for a particular task or occupation in life.
