An effective teacher is a positive role model who leads by example.
Our teachers are always willing to assist students with their learning, social and emotional needs, and are aware of their students’ various learning styles as well as multiple methods of teaching.
An effective teacher has high expectations for each of their students and frequently provides them with constructive feedback about their work.
