CENTER FOR TEACHING & LEARNING

As part of Westmark's commitment to bring current research and best practices to all we do, we have a dedicated Curriculum Team in our Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) committed to the support of our students, families, and faculty and providing differentiation in instruction to meet the needs of each student.

THE GOALS OF THE CENTER ARE TWO-FOLD:

  • To promote teaching excellence through mentoring and professional learning using the Westmark Teaching Methods and current Special Education pedagogy.
  • To support students and their families in understanding students' unique learning profiles and in using a strength-based approach to navigate academic and social/emotional challenges.
