Maret has a dedicated faculty of life-long learners. We truly value continuing education opportunities and offer assistance to our faculty for expanding their areas of expertise. Faculty members have attended many conferences locally and nationally and may apply for summer grants, as well. 

 

Funds traditionally have been spent on

  • attendance at national and local conferences
  • workshops during the year and summer, varying in length from one day to one week
  • summer grants for in-house curriculum development
  • local independent school conferences
  • advanced course work (i.e., single courses), sometimes at the school’s request and sometimes at the teacher’s request
  • attendance at the People of Color Conference and other diversity institutes

Recently, faculty participated in the following professional development

Maret’s Case Institute for Curricular Innovation & Excellence supports summer curriculum work and reimburses faculty at professional levels. Any teaching faculty may apply for these grants.
