The responsibilities of an Episcopal teacher go far beyond grading tests and teaching the curriculum. It is a commitment by the administration as well as the faculty and staff of the School to continue being life-long learners, not only in their subject area but also in the methodology they bring to their classroom.
State and national accreditation require that independent schools maintain a strong professional development program to keep teachers current on a wide variety of issues. Episcopal strives to uphold and exceed those standards by providing a diverse yet relevant set of opportunities that supplement a teacher’s academic foundation.
Funding is generously provided by the Board of Trustees and the Episcopal Fund to support the faculty and staff in this mission. A professional development committee reviews and organizes many of the available in-house opportunities. In addition, opportunities outside of the School, including online classes, enable faculty and staff to garner information and ideas from other professionals in the field.
