Professional Development

The August and September professional development days were a huge success. The Professional Development Advisory Committee has worked over the last few years to help to extend and refine professional development sessions and offerings. Each day was broken up into three blocks of time. Teachers were able to choose from a menu of sessions. The variety of offerings made it a rich learning experience for all involved. The third block of time was dedicated to Professional Learning Communities. We could not have offered such a dynamic menu without our teacher leaders and administrators:
