We define great teaching as ensuring that every student is both challenged and known.
Great teaching puts the thinking on students and utilizes rigorous standards alongside rigorous assessments.
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.
