Benefits of Working at The Oaks
Everyone in the school community operates under guidance of the mission, core values and educational philosophy. The staff have a strong sense of working toward a common cause as it relates to curriculum, teaching techniques, school initiatives, student discipline, etc. Teachers and administrators enjoy healthy relationships with one another, as well as with school leadership.
The Oaks is committed to professional development as a means of support. Teachers participate in weekly planning meetings in a variety of formats. At the beginning of each school year, teachers attend informational and inspirational sessions, welcoming new teachers into The Oaks’ fellowship. Throughout the year there are several days and half days designated for professional development, which provide valuable time for interaction among classroom teachers and instructional assistants. Opportunities for offsite training are also available.
Teachers and staff are encouraged to relate to and support one another, offering accountability in an environment where it is okay to fail and take risks. Oaks teachers have the opportunity to share their knowledge and use their gifts in ways that are often limited in other classroom environments today. Because there is a unifying standard around which the community rallies, the result is an atmosphere of respect, order, fairness, optimism, high expectations, warm interpersonal relationships, accountability, and opportunities for academic success and spiritual growth.
