Congratulations to our 2018 Faculty Grant Recipients!

Our teachers never stop shaping themselves into better educators. Through faculty grants, our instructors are given the opportunity to enhance their teaching repertoire during the summer months. They go on journeys of discovery, take workshops, study under veteran instructors, and delve deeper into the subjects they teach.

These grants have strengthened our faculty in tremendous ways. American History teacher Barbara Luengas explored the beaches of Normandy and other monumental WWII sites. Art teacher Katie Coleman made the pilgrimage to Rome, Florence, and Venice to study masterpieces of the Renaissance. Theater Arts teacher Susan Draper attended the Meisner Teacher Training Program at the True Acting Institute in Oregon. In Prague, third grade teacher Lisa Gilmore and Lower School Librarian Christa Pryor discovered new ways to incorporate creativity into our curriculum. So how would you like to grow as a teacher?

Faculty grants are generously underwritten by the Carrabba family and funds raised by each eighth grade class.
