Our teachers are highly trained, emotionally sensitive nurturers who adore children. We expect them to bring passion, love, imagination, intelligence, and enthusiasm to their practice and to the child’s day. Teachers mentor our students as learners, risk-takers, and evolving young individual human beings, seeking to connect with and inspire each child’s unique best self. We foster in our children independent thinking, self-advocacy, and compassionate relationships with others. Providing our teachers with high-quality ongoing professional development may be the most important thing we do to improve students learning.
