At the heart of great schools is great teaching. The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) at Hillbrook School is a program that provides students and faculty with an exceptional educational experience and environment. The core of the CTE is the Resident Teacher Program, a two-year, hands-on teaching and professional development experience that incorporates both theoretical and practical aspects of teaching for beginning and early-career teachers. Resident Teachers work shoulder-to-shoulder with our grade-level teaching teams, engaging in all aspects of teaching and school-wide responsibilities. Our emphasis on collaboration and co-teaching allows the Resident and grade-level teacher teams to make deep inquiries into learning.
