Carden Hall teachers are known for their caring ways, their remarkable teaching talents, their expertise in the Carden Method, and their ability to light the lamp of learning in each child. Our teachers hold degrees in a wide array of subjects, and the faculty boasts over 1000 years of combined teaching experience at Carden Hall.

Each of our teachers is trained thoroughly in the Carden Method prior to teaching on our campus. Mrs. Jones, our Director of Academics, who worked under Mae Carden’s tutelage for fourteen years, teaches an extensive Carden teacher-training course each year.

In addition, teacher training continues through the years under the guidance of mentor teachers and in close corroboration with our Director of Academics. Carden Hall teachers are passionate experts who love to teach.

“I always knew that I wanted to teach children, so I sought the best education I could to prepare me for that with a Master’s in Elementary Education from Stanford. When I was hired for my first job teaching sixth grade in a California public school, I soon realized that, despite my degrees, I was not prepared to be the best teacher for my students."

“One of my top priorities since we opened Carden Hall has been to make sure that, with very selective hiring, extensive teacher training, ongoing mentoring, and the excellent Carden curriculum, every teacher here is equipped to be an excellent teacher, starting with their first day of teaching. All of our teachers are skilled and passionate professionals. That means that each student at Carden Hall has a sure opportunity to learn well.”
