Faculty

Enhance Graland’s dynamic learning community of highly effective educators, administrators and staff.

World-class educators are the key to Graland’s program, inspiring curiosity and lifelong learning and preparing students for a dynamic future. We will continue to successfully recruit highly qualified employees, seeking candidates that reflect the broader community, while refining our hiring practices. Retaining our faculty is just as important, requiring focus on compensation design and the proper support systems to promote retention.
 
Investing in our faculty remains essential. With personal learning plans and performance assessments, all faculty and staff will grow as professionals and leaders in our community. By emphasizing professional development and facilitating collaboration through means like inquiry
groups, we will expand our collective knowledge. Using numerous methods — from cohort groups to visiting experts to conferences — we will ensure faculty and staff broaden their awareness, especially as it relates to differentiation, global understanding, empathy and innovation in
education.
“Graland is focused on providing students with the best and brightest role models in education.”

- Gail Sonnesyn, Associate Head of School
