How Do you Define Professional Learning?

Professional Learning at The SMIC Private School is based on three "essential ideas” that drives the core principles of professional learning communities (PLC). This principal includes:

  • Ensuring that faculty/students learn,
  • A Culture of collaboration for school improvement, removing barriers to success
  • A focus on results based on hard work and commitment.

These principles guide our efforts to sustain our PLC model deeply embedded in the culture of our community. Collaboratively we work 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, and evolving.
