Teachers are encouraged every year to apply for faculty enrichment grants provided through the Parents’ Council. Teachers have traveled throughout the United States and abroad bringing back all the newest teaching methods, ideas for speakers and class projects, updated resources, and above all, new ways to make St. Andrew’s the best school it can be. Five faculty members’ testimonials are featured here and highlight unique enrichment experiences that have directly benefited St. Andrew’s students. From the villages of Costa Rica to high caliber conferences in Chicago and musical training in Eastern Europe, our teachers have truly blossomed under the faculty enrichment grant program that is so generously supported by our St. Andrew’s families and our Parents’ Council.
