Beyond The Classroom
Crimson Global Academy (CGA) prides itself on its exceptional faculty of experienced educators that bring, on average, 20 years of teaching experience. In this blog post, we’ll hear from top teaching staff at CGA, discuss the advantages of being taught by world-class educators, and learn how our teachers contribute to our ranking as the #3 best online high school in the US.
At CGA, we pride ourselves on having a faculty that represents a wide range of cultures and backgrounds. Our teachers have lived and worked in different parts of the world, which gives them a unique perspective on education. They bring this experience into their teaching, helping students develop a global mindset and an appreciation for different ways of thinking. As Isla McKnight, CGA Geography Teacher, states, “The technology that CGA uses benefits the students, it’s a lot more interactive. Teachers can see their work live and track it, so if they’re not on the right track you can quickly intercept that and help.”
All of our teachers are experts in their fields and are dedicated to helping their students achieve their goals. This commitment to excellence is reflected in the high academic standards we set at CGA. As Jack Su, CGA Maths Teacher, points out, “[CGA] provides students with a platform for them to really excel at something… whether it’s a passion they have that’s outside of school, which normal brick and mortar schools may not be able to facilitate… CGA is an excellent platform for that.”
Additionally, whether you are a full-time or part-time student, CGA provides the correct guidance for your plans after high school. Within the University and Careers department, our mission is to support the student’s holistic development throughout their time at CGA. Our approach reflects our diverse student body; each student and family has unique goals and needs, and our counselors work with each family to understand their personal pathway to success beyond graduation from CGA.
At CGA, we believe that teaching is more than just a job - it's a calling. Our teachers are passionate about education and are dedicated to helping their students succeed. As Suzanne Stacy, CGA English Teacher, encourages, “For any student thinking about joining CGA, it is fast paced, it’s engaging, it’s interactive, it’s fun, and you will have a world of teachers at your side.”
At Crimson Global Academy (CGA), our teachers are more than just educators - they are mentors, guides, and facilitators of learning. They have a unique approach to teaching that emphasizes personalized learning, critical thinking, and the integration of technology. As Isla McKnight explains, the CGA app makes it “really easy to come to a breakout room… and to give constant feedback.”
Building relationships is an essential aspect of CGA's approach to education. By prioritizing this, teachers at CGA are able to create a supportive and connected learning environment for their students. CGA's newness as a school also contributes to the excitement and energy surrounding its development. As Mark Vella, Associate Principal CGA, notes, the school is breaking new ground on a weekly basis, making for a dynamic and innovative learning environment.
Individualized support is another important feature of the CGA approach. Teachers recognize that each student has their unique needs and learning styles, and they work to tailor their teaching accordingly. Andrew Karlsberg, Head of Social Studies CGA, explains that the school's bold and exciting ideas keep teachers engaged and they are never bored, “which for a teacher is kind of cool”. This energy translates into individualized attention for students, helping them to reach their full potential.
CGA teachers are dedicated to unlocking their students' potential, challenging them to think critically and creatively. As Jack Su emphasizes, “[CGA] helps students who really wish to excel… and also offers a lot of opportunities not just for students who want to excel but… students who may not suit traditional schooling. They [would] also have the opportunity to thrive in CGA.”
