"Our teachers are the best. They're cool!"

That's what our students would say. As an educator, it is essential that teachers enjoy the company of children, and vice versa. An affectionate, respectful relationship is considered key in the free and easy exchange of ideas. The ability to communicate clearly, be creative, and have an abundant knowledge of the subject matter are also salient qualities required of Progressive's teachers.

Teachers are important role models for young people. Therefore, above all, they should be of high moral character, pleasing personality, and emotionally very stable. Many teachers are looking for an ideal that they can believe in and devote themselves to. We openly share all aspects of our philosophy, and choose candidates who can sympathize and wish to attune their teaching style to its ideals.
