Teaching and leadership

Lab’s nationally and regionally recognized teachers have won Golden Apple Awards for Excellence in Teaching, as well as many other honors. More than educators, however, they serve as role models who challenge students to develop the skills necessary to be inquisitive, reflective, caring, and ethical people who make positive contributions to the community. To ensure that it can attract and retain these outstanding teachers, Lab understands the importance of providing resources for faculty outside the classroom so that they can do their best work inside the classroom.

Funding for teacher professional development not only ensures that Lab hires the best educators but allows them the opportunity to continue to excel at their craft. In addition to bringing that newfound knowledge back to their classrooms, professional development allows teachers to model for their students what it means to embrace a lifelong love of learning.
