Faculty & Staff

The Ateneo de Manila Grade School Teacher is the primary formator in the classroom. As a model of the Jesuit principle of cura personalis alumnorum (personal care and concern for the student), he is greatly responsible for the development and holistic formation of the students.
Following the principle of special parental authority, an equally important task of the Grade School teacher aside from teaching, is to attend to the welfare of students.

The Grade School teacher is based in a grade level and is a member of a subject area task force. As a faculty member, the teacher is expected to be involved in the academic and social life of the school community. He also involves himself in professional learning communities, participates in school committees and attends official school functions.

Aside from a teacher’s regular duties, the Grade School teacher also has proctoring, counseling, and student recording duties.
