Pillars of Excellence Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Pillars of Excellence seeks to provide pillars of learning by guiding Professional Development. With the purpose being to assist educators in the attainment of knowledge and implementing effective practice.

Teaching Philosophy

We believe that learning should be designed with the student in mind, first. The goal is to create learning experiences that meet the student’s learning style and interests. To bring to the table information, resources, and sensitivity that represents current best practices and community needs. 

What is presented should be relevant, applicable and doable in the student’s work the next day. Students bring their own experience, ideas and training. This should be valued and allowed expression. 

We feel it is important that the learning process should be flexible and open to supporting student needs. To support students who require accommodation as much as possible for a successful learning experience and acquisition of knowledge.
