TEACHERS OF SUBSTANCE, CHARACTER, INTELLECT, AND FAITH. TEACHERS WHO LEAD, CHALLENGE, AND MODEL. TEACHERS WHO CARE FOR THEIR STUDENTS.
Without question, our teachers are at the core of our high-quality education. These men and women seek to educate, lead, challenge, encourage, and set examples of faith and character for each student.
Providence Hall teachers are both intellectual and relational, gentle and challenging. They engage their students with grace and truth. They have joined the Providence Hall faculty because they are committed to our distinctive mission and they desire to be a part of our story.
Our teachers partner with parents to engage young minds, shape compassionate hearts, instill shared values, and help guide students through their adolescent years. They sponsor extracurricular activities and are enthusiastic fans at athletic events and theater productions.They are men and women of substance who are excellent in their field and well-prepared to serve our families.
Curriculum and programs alone are not what engages the mind or shapes the heart of a young person. A complete educational experience happens in relationships with teachers of faith who develop disciplines, encourage curiosity, equip students to achieve success, and inspire a love for learning.
Our faculty members have been carefully recruited and selected on the basis of personal character and Christian commitment, as well as being highly-skilled teachers who are well educated and passionate about the students they teach. They have joined Providence Hall because they are committed to our distinctive mission. They understand their significant responsibility to be role models and mentors, and develop strong bonds with students in and out of the classroom. Currently, we have 14 full-time and three part-time faculty members, with a teacher to student ratio of approximately 1:8. In addition, local Christian leaders, teachers, and theologians teach portions of our Foundations of the Christian Faith course.
Our staff and administrators are also carefully recruited and selected on the basis of skills, character, and Christian commitment. They are just as passionate about the students as are the teachers, and seek to lead by example in all their interactions with each other, with faculty, and with students.
“Providence Hall teachers love to ask questions, from the philosophical (What is truth?) to the practical (How do you find the circumference of a circle?). We ask these questions in a community of learners, grounded in faith, knowledge, theory, and history, giving students the tools to become deep thinkers.” ~ Mr. Bruce Rottman, Humanities
“Teaching math at Providence Hall is meaningful, effective, and enjoyable. A benefit of the small class sizes is that by the end of each class period, my students and I clearly know which concepts were mastered and which ones need to be revisited before moving on. No student slips through the cracks.” – Laura Trudelle, Mathematics Teacher
