In the Classroom
Grattan uses Restorative Practices with our students – and within our entire community – to encourage personal responsibility, to create a safe and caring environment, and to restore relationships when harm has occurred. To learn more about this approach to communication and discipline, visit the Restorative Practices pages at HealthierSF.
Our classroom teachers are fully credentialed, and several hold Master’s Degrees and/or are National Board Certified. As a staff, we are committed to ongoing professional development and the use of effective, research-based teaching methods. Our balanced approach to the whole child helps our students develop critical thinking and inspires a thirst for learning.
We help nurture our students’ social and emotional growth, as well as their ability to respect others and, most importantly, themselves.
Our classroom teachers are supported by a number of other certified instructors. We have a licensed speech therapist, two special education resource teachers, an instrumental music instructors, a PE instructor, a librarian and a visual and performing arts teacher. Grattan’s staff is committed to collaborating with one another in order to deliver engaging and student-centered instruction.
