How Do you Define Professional Learning?

Professional Learning at The SMIC Private School is defined and based on three "big ideas” that represent the core principles of professional learning communities (PLC). These principal includes ensuring that students learn, a culture of collaboration for school improvement, removing barriers to success and a focus on results based on grit and commitment.

These principles guide our efforts to sustain our PLC model deeply embedded in the culture of our community. Collaboratively we walk with our educators and stakeholders to not only sustain current pedagogical practices but cultivate new and emerging innovation in the academic market place, ensuring our educators teach at their optimum and our students differentiated learning needs is always in permanent beta - learning, growing, evolving.
