Crescent School teachers and administrators love learning. In fact, more than 35 Crescent faculty and administrators engaged in professional development opportunities this past summer, building their skills and expanding their knowledge.
As the Dean of Studies, the myriad of articles and professional development opportunities that come across my desk and arrive daily in my inbox is at times overwhelming. It can be difficult separating the useful and relevant − research, opinion pieces, new ideas and political initiatives − from the rest of the pile. The key is to find that sensible middle ground and then use the School’s mission and ethos to hone into our sweet spot, always through the lens of our Strategic Academic Plan.
