Training & Development
Monkey Tree provides all of its teachers with a comprehensive two week training program. During this training program teachers will be introduced to the various classes offered at Monkey Tree and will be given the various tools and methods needed to effectively teach these lessons. Our teacher trainers are experienced teachers themselves who are passionate about teaching and who work diligently to create a positive and welcoming environment for all our new members.
After our teachers undergo an intensive training program, our Center Liaisons are responsible for ensuring teachers continue to offer beneficial lessons in the classroom. Through constant communication with their designated centers they work with teachers to help improve the quality of lessons and to offer any additional support they may need through open communication, regular feedback and an appraisal program.
The observation and appraisal process is one of the most important aspects of professional development here at Monkey Tree. Appraisals are completed by both Head Teachers and Center Liaisons on a regular basis to help ensure our teachers are properly prepared for their lessons and that they’re teaching the material in an effective, engaging, and suitable manner. This helpful feedback is designed to give our teachers the support and tools needed to excel within their roles.
