Our Team

Our aim is to provide excellent professional development opportunities that enhance our abilities to effectively engage with our students and cultivate an environment in which students and employees alike can thrive.

We participate in the Flexible Calendar Program with the Chancellor’s Office which means that we have committed to the State that we will provide professional development in lieu of work.
