Teaching at Lake and Park is collaborative as themes are shared across the grades and among the teachers.  We  believe that children benefit from learning art (and sports and music)  from a teacher whom they also learn to read and write and do mathematics with;  each teacher operates as a generalist. Our one specialist, Sofia Garcia-Beyaert, teaches world languages to all the grades throughout the school. Because there is a strong multi-age component to each school day, each child is known and supported by the entire faculty.
