Learn more about our work in this area.
Our goal is to create a faculty/staff culture where all employees can bring their full selves to work. In addition to ample cultural competency professional development, we recently began affinity groups for faculty/staff to create an environment where identity can be affirmed and explored. We recognize that everyone’s experience in independent schools is different, and we want to be sure that all employees feel cared for and seen. The entire community benefits when all of our identities are nurtured.
MFS is committed to all employees’ professional development and provides resources for faculty and staff to develop skills and gain experience to achieve professional excellence. Faculty and staff participate in programs, seminars, courses, and conferences to enrich themselves as professionals and as people. Here are just a few examples:
New Faculty Program
New faculty and staff participate in an extensive three-day interactive orientation to help new employees acclimate to the school. Following the orientation, new faculty engage in an ongoing experience throughout their first year. Through the experience of learning about school culture (e.g., cultural competency, Quakerism, class observations, etc.) and working together to address unique questions and dilemmas that arise in their first year, the new faculty cohort develops a strong sense of identity and belonging within the larger community.
Peer School Visit Program
Each year, several faculty members are granted leave to participate in a unique Peer School Visit Program. Through observation, interaction, and discussion with peer educators, the program helps to keep the MFS community and culture fresh with new ideas, best practices, and various perspectives on how to best educate our students. Recent school visits have included: The MacLean School (MD), Denver Waldorf School (CO), Brightwork School (CA), Phillips Exeter (NH), Germantown Friends School (PA), The Miquon School (PA), Wildhaven Forest Preschool (MD), and Carolina Friends School (NC)
Zekavat Family Summer Sabbatical
The Zekavat Family Summer Sabbatical was established in 1996 to encourage MFS faculty to engage in creative and challenging summer travel and study for four to six weeks or more. The sabbatical is meant to contribute to the rejuvenation and education of the teachers at MFS and to permit them to pursue opportunities for personal growth and learning. Travel often occurs over a three-to-four week period, and participants pursue a self-made itinerary informed by their prior research, reading, and planning.
Some recent sabbaticals:
- French Teacher Jen Murphy Explores India Through Zekavat Summer Sabbatical
- Upper School History Teacher Eliza McFeely Explores WWII-Era Italy through Zekavat Summer Sabbatical
- Second Grade Teacher Paige Bloom Deepens Yoga Practice and Mindfulness in Bali through Zekavat Summer Sabbatical
