At Avenues, our teachers never stop growing.
For students to become engaged learners and flexible thinkers, teachers must boldly lead by example. Our teachers are lifelong learners with an infectious thirst for knowledge, and who model that thirst for their students.
Professional learning isn’t something we do every so often at a conference. We’re learning intently, on the job, every day. We learn from our colleagues, from our leaders and from our own experience.
When it comes to professional development, collaboration is key. Avenues faculty spend hundreds of hours working in teams throughout the year, developing curricula, reflecting on student progress and identifying ways to improve. Avenues teachers have described this as the richest learning experience of their careers. In addition to giving faculty the time and space to support each other, we provide dedicated professional learning sessions during the summer and on full days throughout the school year. Teachers also receive regular feedback from leaders whose job it is to help them succeed. Avenues faculty also have access to resources such as tuition reimbursement for further training and funding to attend conferences.
