Centre for Teaching, Learning & Research

Professional Learning and Growth

    • At Greenwood, we put into practice what the research tells us about the impact of professional learning.

Our teacher growth model is designed to support teachers at every stage of their careers.
At Greenwood, we put into practice what the research tells us about the impact of professional learning. Many studies have shown that optimizing teacher learning has a direct positive impact on student learning.

Over teachers’ first three years with us, we carefully support their growth. During this time, we focus on personalized learning and building The Standards of Teaching in the areas of instruction, assessment and reflection, and mastery.
    • Greenwood's teacher growth model ensures that our teachers have a solid understanding of personalized learning and provides opportunities for continuous learning.

Our Experienced Teachers

When our teachers reach Year 4, they shift into our 4+ model. Teachers in this group receive instructional coaching and develop goals that support student learning and well-being. At the end of each school year, 4+ teachers reflect on their growth through End-of-Year Conversations with the Executive Director of the Greenwood Centre for Teaching and Learning. Teachers can select the format for this conversation that best suits their subject and learning style.

We acknowledge with gratitude the Ancestral lands upon which our main campus is situated. These lands are the Ancestral territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabek and the Wendake. The shared responsibility of this land is honoured in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty and as settlers, we strive to care for the land, the waters, and all creatures in the spirit of peace. We are responsible for respecting and supporting the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. When away from this campus we vow to be respectful to the land by protecting and honouring it. We will create relationships with the people and the land we may visit by understanding the territories we enter and the nations who inhabit them.
