Teachers

“When teachers are trusted, respected and supported, they are much more willing to role model their confidence in the classroom, take on leadership roles and impart knowledge to their students in creative ways.”

VIS teachers are committed to making a difference in their students’ lives. They are knowledgeable, creative, caring, inspirational and highly qualified.  They communicate effectively with parents; but most importantly, they communicate effectively with each other and their students. In essence, they know their students well and are able to devote their attention to their strengths and areas of potential growth. As such, they focus on delivering a program that inspires students to participate, reflect, think critically, analyze, create and excel academically. Most important, they create classrooms where students can feel a sense of belonging, and develop programs that inspire learning, and motivate students to want to come to school day after day.

The qualifications of our teachers range from having obtained B.Ed’s to Ph. D’s. Several of our teachers have completed their Master of Teaching at OISE, and most have a B.Ed from other faculties of education. Teachers who teach non-core subjects such as Dance, Music, Theatre, Culinary Arts, Visual Arts and Athletics, are experts in their field and/or practicing artists with extensive teaching experience. All of them demonstrate a love of teaching and a commitment to education.
