The Center for Teaching Excellence is an innovative learning institute that raises the level of teaching quality and education experience for children in both public and private institutions. The CTE supports the interest of lifelong learning by creating a dynamic environment that is committed to collaborative teaching and teacher development.
The CTE has three main components:
- A resident teaching program in which open-minded, confident, passionate beginning and early-career teachers work with master teachers to make deep inquiries into learning.
- Education conferences where thought leaders in education collaborate and exchange ideas on cutting edge practices impacting teaching and educational excellence in Silicon Valley.
- A speaker series designed to appeal to teachers, parents and students with a variety of interesting topics delivered by a phenomenal and diverse pool of thought leaders in the educational community as well as professionals from Silicon Valley’s dynamic academic, business and non-profit sectors (including select Hillbrook parent superstars).
