Teachers address many facets of students' lives and act in tandem with parents and fellow educators to do so. Collegial behavior at Country Day takes many forms. It can be the relationship between a master teacher and a mentee, a group of teachers working on strategies to help a student write better essays, or committees deciding to change curriculum. As part of this community, teachers find themselves surrounded by supportive colleagues and are involved in community life.

Mentors
Each new faculty member is assigned a fellow teacher as a mentor. This person functions as part of a larger support structure for new teachers, which includes the New Faculty Committee, the administration, and all other faculty members. Mentors are paired with new faculty to help new teachers learn the culture of the school and grow professionally. These experienced and respected members of the Country Day community are a "friendly face" for teachers on campus. Mentors help teachers grow professionally by partnering with them to evaluate their work.

Professional Development
Professional Development opportunities are often fully funded by Country Day because we believe that ongoing training is crucial to teacher growth and development. $100,000 is budgeted each year for the faculty's professional endeavors. Annual ISAS and NAIS conferences, workshops in a teacher's subject or grade area and specialized training with the newest researchers in learning and child development are resources that faculty take advantage of to continue to improve their craft as teachers.

On campus, opportunities for professional growth abound. Department chairs, mentors, division heads, and other administration observe classes and meet with faculty about their professional growth. At the end of each school year, every faculty member meets with the Head of School to discuss their professional development over the past year. This is an opportunity for teachers to bring up concerns with the Head, review their accomplishments, and discuss goals for the coming year. In addition to the ongoing individual professional development during the year, at the beginning and end of each school year, faculty gather to discuss important curricular matters, work together in cross-divisional groups, and meet with experts in the field of education, curriculum, diversity, and child development.

Metairie Park Country Day School considers all applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, veteran status, age, or disability.
