Teaching and Learning Department About Page


Teachers are reflective, data-driven practitioners who continually hone their craft via ongoing learning.


The goal of Teaching & Learning is to provide high quality curriculum, as well as state of the art instructional and assessment practices that translate into continually improving student learning opportunities and results.

We offer ongoing dialogue with educators challenging our notions about the best ways to provide learning opportunities that are engaging, rigorous, relevant, meaningful, and lasting.

We are committed to making decisions based on research on best practices and reflection on our current practices in order to improve the science and craft of education in CPSD.
