Faculty and Staff
Maryvale educators are committed to the students in their care, both in and out of the classroom, in an effort to offer each student a sense of belonging at Maryvale. With this goal in mind, increasing awareness about the ways students learn, interact, and are perceived is as much a part of professional development as is pedagogy and teaching innovation.
Maryvale participated in the AIMS subscription series in the 2021-2022 school year. This offered school employees workshops in a number of important topics, including: Administration and Leadership; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; Social Emotional Learning; and Teaching and Learning.
