Working With Us

At GAAQ, we take exceptional pride in recruiting educators from across the world that exhibit high-quality teaching practice, a penchant for going above-and-beyond their role and professionals that integrate themselves into a larger community.

Professional Development

We ensure that our teachers and administrators are thought leaders and stay at the forefront of innovative teaching and educational practices through a culture of professional development (PD).  The academy has a strong PD program embedded into the school schedule allowing for whole school (K – 12), divisional (Early Years, Elementary, Middle and High School) and individual learning opportunities to build capacity and skills within the teachers and leaders.  This structure is supported by an early release Thursday schedule for professional learning opportunities each week that are either led internally or through a guest speaker.  Moreover, Lower School (K – 5) has an Instructional Coach that is chiefly responsible for curriculum development and co-teaching with educators to strengthen their lesson planning and instruction.

Lastly, as we recruit from around the world, we recognize and value the expertise and experience that each faculty member brings.  Our teachers, primarily sourced from the United States and Canada, are empowered to deliver specific sessions during whole school PD days and meet regularly during the week to perfect their educational craft.
