Lawrence faculty members are not only great teachers, but great learners as well.
Each teacher is part of a professional learning community of practice where they work with one another, learning specialists and administrators to learn and use ever more effective and useful teaching and learning strategies and hone their understanding of principles of pedagogy and good practice.
Teachers at Lawrence work closely with each student to understand their learning style and adapt assignments and projects to complement that student's individual strengths.
Perhaps most importantly, the student-teacher relationship — one of support, encouragement, and adaptability in learning — fosters feelings of success and confidence to approach learning challenges head-on.
