Teachers Make the Difference
At Atlantic Community Charter School, our teachers make all the difference in the education of our students. We believe we have the most dedicated, hardworking, committed, competent, and compassionate teachers in the field of education. Recruiting of our teachers is taken very seriously. Recruiting efforts begin in early spring so our professional staff can, cohesively and synergistically, begin to implement the school’s mission.
Our staff is trained to notice learning differences early on so students can get the help they need right away. Grade directors, senior-level teachers with years of experience, provide guidance and knowledge to their respective grade teachers in an effort to enhance teacher outcomes and student performance. Professional development is on-going at ACCS. We work hard to make sure our teachers are on the cutting edge of technology and are aware of new or changing teaching pedagogies so our students can benefit from new research and educational tools.
Our staff arrives at school each morning eager to teach their students. Their smiles and warm hearts are reminders to us that even the smallest of gestures can make a big difference in the lives of a student. Extra words of encouragement, a pat on the back, staying late, or coming in early to assist a student, volunteering to start a new program, attending sporting events, providing guidance to help with life lessons, encouraging extracurricular activities, etc. are just a few examples of what our teachers do to enhance the lives of our students. From the time our teachers become members of the ACCS family they are 100% focused on making a difference in the lives of our children and the community in which they live.
