Our Faculty and Staff Are Amazing
- Tim Seymour, CBC Principal
I am so lucky to work with such a dedicated faculty and staff. In the most recent issue of CBC Today we talk about what makes our faculty and staff so special. While everyone at CBC offers something truly unique, we strive to find faculty who exhibit all of the following qualities.
They are creative problem-solvers who continually seek to improve all areas and facets of our school community. In the competitive market of St. Louis private, secondary education, we need to be committed to continuous improvement from all members of our team.
They are adaptable. In the quickly evolving world of education, it is necessary to be flexible and exhibit a willingness to change. Our school leadership has introduced many important initiatives over the past several years to improve our academic product and student experience, and our faculty and staff have embraced each and every one of them.
They are committed to our community. We count on our people to make contributions beyond the walls of their own classroom and outside of normal school hours, and they never disappoint. Our faculty and staff are more than classroom teachers, and they understand that the CBC Experience is so much more than academics. We are thankful that they give of their own time so that our students can create memories that last a lifetime.
They build trusting relationships with all members of our community. We seek out educators who understand that personal relationships-with students, parents, alumni, and each other-are foundational to both their success and our success as a community. Look no further than pre-game activities during a Friday night in the fall, the CBC Auction, or the hugs and handshakes shared at graduation to see the connections that our faculty and staff develop with all CBC stakeholders.
They live the Lasallian mission. Our faculty and staff are invested in carrying out and carrying on the mission of St. John Baptist De La Salle. They recognize the unique God-given gifts and talents of each individual student and challenge them to become Men for Tomorrow.
These qualities can be seen in so many ways on our campus. Mr. Joe Henken went above and beyond to help make the first year of CBC Summer Academy a huge success...Mrs. Melissa Ryan is incredibly helpful and forms amazing relationships with families interested in sending their sons to CBC...Mrs. Amy Shupe and Mr. Craig Nicoletti (and many others) worked countless extra hours to help their Advanced Placement students deliver unbelievable results on the A.P. test.
Thank you to these examples, and to all of our teachers who continue to work so hard to make CBC Stronger Than Ever!
