“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” – William Arthur Ward
We believe that the best teacher is one who can inspire children. In Edison Schools, when selecting teachers, we believe that excellent qualifications and experience are necessary but not sufficient conditions. The most important thing is the openness, creativity, and willingness to continue to learn, improve knowledge to always be a worthy teacher, be confident in front of students of the new era.
Therefore, continuous training to improve teacher qualifications is a top priority and always is focused on the school’s annual plan, especially with the support from schools and educational partners such as Wellspring High International Bilingual Schools, Universities of Pedagogy in Vietnam, University of Pedagogy of the University of Missouri, Cambridge English Testing Organization, Pearson, Creative Academy, etc.
The completely proactive policies and management mechanisms in Edison always evaluate, benefit according to actual competence. Being a working environment that maximizes the ability of teachers and values of humanity respects, encourages creativity, Edison Schools really motivates working and sticking “from the inside” for each teacher, helping them to make lasting commitments, devoting their best to teaching and educating students.
