Student Centered Classroom

Teaching is all about the student. As Christian educators, we strive for excellence in our teaching with a focus on each student as a unique individual, created by God. It includes ongoing attention to each student’s growth and needs to design lessons, activities, and a rich classroom environment that motivates, inspires, and guides each student in their learning. This track focuses on best practices that strive for student centered excellence in our classrooms.
