How I Teach: Six Country Day Teachers Reflect on How They Make a Difference for the Students They Teach

Our community often cites the excellence of our faculty as one of the qualities they value most about a Country Day education. While the methods of delivery may change and the ways students acquire new information evolve, the enduring qualities of highly impactful teaching and learning remain the same. Exceptional teachers build trusting relationships with their students, and they never stop learning themselves. 

Six Country Day teachers reflect on how they infuse their classrooms and curriculums with these foundational values that truly make a difference for the students they teach. They are representative of the magic that happens between teachers and their students at every grade level in every division. Common threads to their success include flexibility, humility, creativity, and a genuine love for being around kids.
