Our Lower School teachers are exceptionally qualified and highly trained, both in the subjects they teach and in the art of instruction. They choose to teach here precisely because they are the sort of mentors and guides who aren’t content to simply stand in front of a class and lay down the law. They want the opportunity to know their students inside and out, the flexibility to be innovative with their teaching, and the responsibility for the success of their students’ education. Meet them here!
