Learning is a Life Long Process… Adults and Children Alike…
At Hess Academy, we hire outstanding educators who live out the principles of lifelong learning. Our teachers seek out opportunities to develop themselves professionally year-round, and understand that part of their job description includes modeling intellectual habits of mind for their students and demonstrating that learning does not just take place within the hours of 8:30 to 3:00 Monday through Friday!
4th-5th grade teacher, Katie Robertson, has recently been accepted to REALITY Pro, an elite professional development program for education reformers. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will take her to Israel this Summer for a 10 day journey into another culture’s take on education and learning. She will be immersed in multicultural educational experiences, reflect on her own role as an agent of change, and be surrounded by peers who share her progressive values from all over the country. We wish her well on her voyage and can’t wait to see how this experience transforms her teaching and by extension, our school community!
