Breakwater is a special and unique learning environment in part because of our recognition that it is not only the level of academic degree or training a teacher receives, but the whole of their lives, loves, values, and experience that makes a truly great educator. We appreciate our faculty's passionate dedication to our school - and we celebrate their myriad of interests, hobbies, professional accomplishments, and personal successes in their lives-at-large.
Student 1: My mother was in the Civil War. Student 2: No, she couldn’t have been in the Civil War. Student 1: Well she didn’t fight in the Civil War, she just helped. Student 2: [to the teacher] How long ago was the Civil War? Teacher: About 155 years ago. Student 2: I don’t think your mother could have been in the Civil War. But maybe if she was an older mother.
Breakwater's Parent Education and Professional Development programs offer inspiration, information and community building opportunities to new and experienced parents, caregivers and professional educators.
