MDS' Mission

Monte del Sol Charter School educates and inspires Santa Fe's diverse population in grades 7 through 12, by building strong relationships and creatively engaging the local and global community.

To do this, Monte del Sol Charter School will:

  • provide a small school so each individual is known;
  • acknowledge and celebrate the diversity of its members and the community;
  • connect students with adult community members through the mentorship program;
  • foster awareness of the world through international trips, student exchanges, special events and curricula;
  • engage students in the arts through events, activities, and curricula;
  • teach the importance of environmental sustainability in our curricula and through participation in the garden.

Evolution and authenticity.  My core advice to new teachers is to be authentic, in other words, to be yourself.  My first teaching experience came as a drill instructor in the Rassias Method at Dartmouth College, a thunder and lightening type of language drill technique.  While there are some aspects of the method that are prescribed, to excel you have to customize it.  You have to make it your own.  You have to be yourself, and teach at the same time.
