Great Teaching

We believe great teaching closes the achievement gap


We define great teaching in three key ways:

  1. Our teachers’ instruction puts the thinking on students
  2. Great teaching ensures that students are challenged and known
  3. We utilize rigorous standards alongside rigorous assessments

These practices work together in service of our mission to ensure Brooke students are prepared to attend and succeed in college and beyond.

Great teaching, to me, boils down to great relationships—if you don’t know the kids in front of you, how can you know how to push them to succeed? Great teachers know their kids more deeply than just the surface level; they know their kids’ strengths and areas for growth, their goals and the path they want to take to get there.

We revere teaching as an intellectual profession. We believe great teachers are made, not born. We know great teaching is not easily or quickly mastered and requires that we constantly reflect and improve ourselves.

Whether they're new or have 10+ years of experience,
