One of the best things about James River Day School is the collaborative teacher community. We are in the midst of faculty meetings before school opens on Wednesday, and teachers are spilling over with ideas and good will. Department meetings and grade-level team meetings review our annual targets, teaching philosophy, essential questions and curriculum topics, ensuring that we are connected to the same goals for the students we will teach. As I walk through the building, I hear laughter and earnest conversation. We love what we do!
