As the head of an independent private school it can be challenging to benchmark performance and stay on top of all current development opportunities when you go it alone. At Del Mar Pines School, I have benefited greatly from being a charter member of the San Diego Heads of Independent Schools Group that started two years ago. It is a consortium of private / independent schools both religious and secular in San Diego county.
Benefits for Heads of Independent Schools & Teachers
- Promotes best practices in teaching and growth for educators
- Encourages and facilitates continuing learning opportunities for educators to further inspire and engage their student
- Values teaching as a true profession, where they can test and share approaches to their work
Our Mission is to develop a Heads of Independent Schools Group that meets every over lunch every six weeks, to network while also discussing current issues that affect all private/ independent schools in San Diego.
We are organizing our second San Diego Professional Development Day for all private and independent school teachers, to take place in 2017. Keynote speakers as well as workshops given by teachers will ber part of the exciting day. All Del Mar Pines School teachers will be participating in this conference.
