Professional Development

Ursuline’s faculty and staff go above and beyond to master their craft.

Working in a variety of collaborative learning groups, teachers explore different approaches to assessment and strategies for empowering students to succeed. In peer-led research groups, faculty members share teaching strategies for authentic engagement and multicultural classrooms.

The Academy's professional learning framework encourages teachers to grow in six key areas:

Ongoing Development

Ursuline educators seek to develop themselves by self-reflection, interaction with colleagues, professional development opportunities, and subject based research by:

  • Displaying a disposition of curiosity and life-long learning for and with the students
  • Modeling up-to-date pedagogy

And if, according to times and circumstances, the need arises to make new rules or do something differently, do it prudently and with good advice.
