The heart of Saint George’s is its teachers
T eachers at Saint George’s are excited about what they teach and share that enthusiasm with their students. They bring their life experiences into the classroom, like the Arts teachers who are all practicing professionals in their fields. They set high expectations for their students, and then inspire them to meet those goals. And as our graduates will attest, Saint George’s teachers make a lasting difference in their lives.
Each year a special professional development award, funded by the family of a well loved, former teacher, gives one or more Saint George’s teachers a chance to travel anywhere in the world so they can bring that experience back to enrich their classroom. Teachers have retraced Lewis and Clark’s journey from St. Louis to the Pacific, tramped across Civil War battlefields, and taken in Broadway and Carnegie Hall performances.
It’s their experience and dedication to teaching – and the support of the entire Saint George’s community – that helps them bring out the best in every student they teach.
