As model learners in a school community, faculty members strive to reach their full potential by seeking new knowledge, collaborating with each other, developing skills and undergoing periodic evaluation. Consistent with the ideal that professional development is most effective when woven into the daily activities of faculty members, the school has introduced new and innovative ways of weaving these processes in the faculty's daily life with programs for both new and experienced teachers. These programs supplement the moneys that are already available in department budgets for attendance at workshops and conferences.
The information in this section of the website is designed both to highlight the importance of professional development and to provide specific details about a number of school-wide grants and fellowships. While the opportunities listed below apply exclusively to members of the faculty, there are, at times, limited funds available for administrators and staff members. Those employees interested in administrative or staff member specific professional growth are encouraged to speak to their immediate supervisor who, in turn, will consult with the Head of School.
