Values Growth

Ursuline educators are learners who model openness, humility, excitement, and curiosity to students, colleagues, and the broader community. An excellent educator at Ursuline:

  • Contributes to the profession of teaching and collaborates in school-wide and extended learning communities.
  • Embraces and integrates current, research-based innovations and their applications in education.

And more.
