Elementary Teachers

Our teachers think of themselves as “guides” in the details of the curriculum. We have four basic principles:

  1. To motivate the child’s spirit
  2. To encourage the child’s normal desire for independence and a high sense of self-esteem
  3. To help the child develop the skills to become a meaningful member of society
  4. To help the child learn how to observe, question, and explore ideas independently
