Professional Development

Breck is deeply committed to ongoing professional development for our faculty. A committee called Faculty Advisory accepts applications and makes recommendations for activities including the following:

Sabbatical Years

Two teachers each year are selected for a sabbatical to pursue a course of travel and study of their choice. Faculty members on sabbatical receive their regular salary plus a stipend. 

Summer Grants

Faculty members are encouraged to apply for grants for study programs in areas of both professional and personal interest over the summer.

School Visits

Faculty members are encouraged to apply for assistance with mid-year school visits. Last year, for example, Middle School science teacher Viriginia Amundson visited four schools in the Atlanta area to observe and discuss interdisciplinary science programs.

Conferences

Every year, Breck faculty members are active participants and presenters at professional conferences, workshops and seminars. Funds for such activities are available, by division, to meet individual development needs.

Coursework

Faculty members who teach at least 50 percent time (or at least three classes) can apply for funds to cover the cost of coursework, both over the summer and during the school year.
