For Greenwood’s teachers, delivering the right mix of challenge and support starts with getting to know their students not only as learners, but as people.
Passionate, committed, knowledgeable, energetic and engaging, our teachers and staff have lived, taught and travelled widely around the world, and they bring their diverse backgrounds and life experiences to enrich life at Greenwood. Our student-focused approach ensures that students and teachers create the foundation for a strong rapport from the first day of school, and that these relationships are supported and strengthened over time.
Each of our teachers invests personally in their students' success, applying their own considerable skills along with progressive teaching methods. We also recognize that teachers are learners, too, which is why Greenwood takes a job-embedded approach to professional development. The Greenwood Centre for Teaching and Learning provides our teachers with opportunities to gain skill in the specialized methodologies - such as authentic and ongoing assessment and new learning technologies - that are central to our mission.
All of our teachers are certified by the Ontario College of Teachers.
"Every Greenwood teacher took the time to help me grow and learn, and ensured that I was prepared for university and the workplace."

Our teachers also pull their experiences from around the world into classroom. Greenwood teachers have taught in countries including Costa Rica, China, the Dominican Republic, France, Italy, South Korea and the United Kingdom.
