Headmaster Update Jan 27
From the Headmaster
Dear Archway North Phoenix Families and Friends,
I thought I would share a glimpse of our faculty training with you this week. We are very fortunate at Great Hearts to have so many experts in our ranks. This past Wednesday we hosted Dr. Aaron Thurow, Master Humane letters teacher at Scottsdale Prep, to give a lecture to our faculty on Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, which we had read over winter break. It was a joy for us to become students again, to sit under excellent teaching and be poured into intellectually. This coming Friday, after the students are dismissed at half past noon, our faculty will join over 800 teachers from the Great Hearts network for a private concert performed by Solis Camerata, of which our own music teacher, Mrs. Chantel Krause, is a member. Just as we strive to order and fill the days of our students by pursuing truth, goodness and beauty, so too do we strive to offer our teachers the rich fare that nourishes their souls.
