The Role of The Teacher

The Role of the Teacher

At St. Peter's we believe that staff are the facilitators of learning who provide the students with skills and strategies necessary to become lifelong learners. We believe that the teacher provides an environment where students are encouraged to explore and inquire and where they can utilize their learning strengths. Through developing strong, equal relationships with the students we are able to motivate, support and guide them with their learning so that they become self sufficient, self motivated, independent and reflective.

We believe that students learning should be supported by providing a diverse curriculum, which acknowledges the breadth of intelligence students are capable of displaying. As teachers we are not the holders of knowledge but rather the facilitators of learning who allow students to uncover their vast array of talents and passions.
