Faculty & Staff

Teachers

Our teachers excel in providing knowledge, learning and critical thinking skills through direct instruction, on-line courses, and individual support.

They are experienced teachers that focus on creating a positive and safe learning environment. It is their belief that all students can achieve success through encouragement, support, and meeting individual needs. Opportunities are given to students to personalize their learning and to develop their awareness of how they learn best. Students will become active learners to strengthen their confidence and self-directed learning. Our guest artists help students pursue their interest in the arts.

Counselling is always available for the students to discuss what their personal needs are and how they can reach their academic goals. The teachers take the time to get to know the students in the classroom as well as giving opportunity for experiential learning.

Staff participate in regular professional development so that they can find ways to work in professional learning teams; collaborate on using evidence-based instructional strategies and effective feedback. Bringing student engagement in the classroom will motivate students to improve their learning and obtain higher grades.

Guest artists
