Faculty & Staff

Faculty & Staff

Our faculty’s early childhood expertise ensures a dynamic and meaningful educational experience for our students. Faculty members include classroom teachers, specialists, learning resource teachers, librarians, nurses, a chaplain, and a school counselor, with an overall student-faculty ratio of 6:1.

Beauvoir is committed to hiring a diverse faculty and staff; 11 percent of the faculty and staff are male and 39 percent bring racial and ethnic diversity. A total of 75 percent of our partner teachers and specialists have or are currently pursuing advanced degrees, including six who hold completed doctorates.

A comprehensive professional development program supports educators’ commitment to professional growth. Teachers attend and lead conferences on a range of topics including inclusive pedagogy, literacy and guided reading, mathematics, technology integration, mindfulness, and social-emotional learning.

Each year, faculty members are awarded travel grants to pursue studies in international and domestic locations in support of Beauvoir’s Global Studies curriculum
