Our Teaching Staff
To support this kind of carefully structured learning environment, our teaching staff has expertise in the application of the Canadian Language Benchmarks and uses that criterion to prepare their weekly lesson plans. Moreover, all teachers discuss their lesson plans with the Education Coordinator on an individual basis every Monday morning. At least once a month the Education Coordinator holds a professional-development group meeting to discuss planning and teaching strategies. These formal meetings create an environment of conscientious professionalism in which, on their own initiative, staff members also arrange informal meetings with colleagues. Advice and collaboration are always promoted with respect to lesson planning, classroom management, and language-teaching methodology.
