Global Purpose Academy hires skilled, passionate subject matter teacher experts to strengthen its academic STEAM programming. STEAM is an acronym for: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. Our teachers bring passion to their subjects into the classroom to unlock excitement and trigger interest for learning within our students.
To support our STEAM model, students move to different classrooms with subject matter teachers. Teachers focus on only the subject for which they have a passion, thereby enhancing enthusiasm, dedication and student learning. Classrooms are thematic, to represent the subject matters in that room and envelope the child in the mindset of that particular subject. This model also enhances social and behavioral improvements as children get exposed to various teachers, personalities and also adapt to different classroom environments.
