The Beauvoir Center for Teaching and Learning
|Voices for Learning: The Beauvoir Center for Teaching and Learning is an institute which specializes in providing effective, research-based, year-round professional development, ranging from one-day classes to week-long courses. Since its inception in 2002, over 3,500 early childhood, primary and middle school educators from across the nation have taken part in rich and exciting learning opportunities. In addition to offering a variety of courses, Voices for Learning provides numerous opportunities for professionals to reflect on personal teaching experiences, grow together as learners, and share ideas, lessons and opinions with others in a stimulating environment.|
Beginning in 2006, Voices for Learning began offering seminars to parents and caregivers around current parenting and educational topics. In addition the Center has provided opportunities for parents and children to participate in specialty classes in the arts and sciences. Parents report positive experiences around the discussion and sharing of ideas on issues and topics at the early childhood and primary grade levels, as well as the satisfaction and fun of working with one’s child in a collaborative activity.
Voices for Learning is part of Beauvoir, the National Cathedral Elementary School. Located on the magnificent grounds of the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC, Beauvoir has long been an institution where faculty members are dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning. Faculty members are committed to staying abreast of current research, taking advantage of the numerous professional development opportunities available, and discussing their understanding and knowledge with colleagues.
