We have shown our commitment to Wellesley Public Schools by funding programs that enhance or support the curriculum. For example, we have funded equipment and instructional materials for math, science and language art programs. We have also funded author visits to the schools and creative writing workshops.
WEF also believes in the value of keeping our teachers trained and up-to-date on the newest innovations in teaching. With this goal in mind, we have funded professional development courses for our teachers, such as “Teachers as Scholars”, “Skillful Teaching”, “Understanding the Whole Boys Curriculum”, and “Children’s Literature Summer Institute”.
