How We Support Expert Teaching

By putting teachers at the center of their own professional development, we empower teachers to unlock students' potential.

  • Administration designs responsive, differentiated, inquiry-based weekly professional development at school. This professional development is framed with a growth mindset, building on teachersā€™ accomplishments while supporting them to become more effective teachers.
  • Teachers new to Gateway participateĀ in site-based professional development that supports their transition to and success in our unique school environment.
  • Teachers engage in ongoing collaboration both within disciplines & across disciplines.
  • Teachers are encouraged to access outside professional development opportunities, sometimes individually but often in teams so that they can proactively bring their learning back to the classroom.
