We take seriously the responsibility of every employee, whatever they are doing, for the delivery of the mission of Trinity. Teachers have a special responsibility for the care and guidance of students, but our administrative and support staff also embody the mission. So we all gathered on Monday, August 13, to learn together, to hear a panel of old-timers talk about the history of the school, and to cover the essentials of the mission of Trinity. It was a full morning, but we always have a good time.
New teachers read Elaine Cooper's When Children Love to Learn, a good distillation of Charlotte Mason's philosophy and pedagogy by various esteemed Mason educators, like Jack Beckman, who visited Trinity last year.
On Tuesday, August 14, Desiree and I enjoyed lunch with the new teachers at our home. The pictures above are from that day.
