Redmond Washington Teachers Honored
Fine arts and history teachers at The Bear Creek School honored by their peers.
Additionally, Rob Sorensen, Upper School history teacher, was one of only two high school teachers among college professors presenting a paper recently at the Kuyers Institute at Calvin College. His paper, entitled “Virtues at the Table: Harkness Pedagogy and Christian Education,” was very well received by the academic community at Calvin. Mr. Sorensen applies the Harkness method as one pedagogical tool in the classroom at Bear Creek, where his students sit at seminar tables instead of traditional desks thereby increasing student engagement.
Founded in 1988, in Redmond, Washington, The Bear Creek School is an Independent Classical Christian School that believes only when faith, mind, and heart are fed together can someone experience the fullness of education, which produces leaders who think well and are compelled to engage the world.
The school serves students from the greater Eastside and is housed on four campuses. Redmond Campus on Union Hill serves kindergarten to grade 12 students and Valley Campus, also in Redmond, serves preschool to grade 5 students. Bear Creek has two Early Childhood campuses in Woodinville and Sammamish serving preschool and prekindergarten students. The Bear Creek School is accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities, and the Pacific Northwest Association of Independent Schools.
