Namaste’s teaching staff is a diverse group of professionals. All classroom teachers are certified by the State of Illinois and are committed to continuing their own professional development. Many teachers and staff members hold advanced degrees, National Board Certification and additional areas of recognition.
Each of Namaste’s staff members sets a professional goal at the beginning of the year and works with his or her Instructional Leader to achieve that goal. As part of the ongoing professional development process, teachers participate in a variety of conferences and workshops throughout the year and during the summer. In addition, Namaste has early dismissal Fridays to allow teachers to work with colleagues and engage in school-wide professional development and learning.
