The Role Teachers Play in Our Lives

Is there a teacher you recall that helped mold you into the person you are today? Perhaps they passed along an important life lesson or helped you to see your true potential? If you are like most people, at least one teacher impacted your life in a positive way. That’s because teachers educate us on far more than history, math, art, music or English. They teach us about hard work and the importance of doing the best we can in all that we do. They help us to understand the world around us and question it when we do not understand. They teach us how to set goals and how to achieve them. They inspire us to pursue our dreams and give us the tools and support we need to succeed.

Teachers for the 21st Century

At Elevate, we understand that teachers are the key to the classroom and how critical the right teachers are to your child’s development and success. Unlike the teachers of the past, today’s teachers – in addition to staying up-to-date on the news and events that shape our world – must also stay current on the latest teaching tools, technologies and methods in order to provide students the best education possible. Considering some of the unique challenges distance learning programs like Elevate must overcome, it is imperative that we employ only the most qualified and experienced Colorado licensed teachers. Our teachers make up some of the leading distance learning teachers in Colorado, and we are your partners in providing your child the future they deserve.

Effective Collaboration for Optimal Success

Our teachers partner with you in your child’s education and, as such, agree to:

  • Keep students at the center of every decision
  • Believe that all students can learn and achieve
  • Partner with parents
  • Build character
  • Remind students they are responsible for their own learning
  • Develop and build programs that address the wide spectrum of opportunities and academic abilities of students leading to student success

Although parents play a major role in a student’s access to daily lessons, performance assessments, and the student’s management of his or her time, they are by no means alone. Parents, students and teachers collaborate regularly to overcome obstacles and provide the tools and support needed to help students achieve. Teachers interact with students and parents in several different ways, including:

  • Monthly progress meetings
  • Parent/teacher workshops
  • Teacher-guided outings

In addition, teachers are available to answer questions, address issues and provide support regarding your child’s education as needed. While they may not always be able to reply immediately, our teachers typically respond by phone or email within 24 hours.
