Spring is Here!
The quality of our professional learning and collaboration are primary keys to our students' achievement. Take some time this spring to consider the role of professional learning in the continuous improvement cycle.
Just to get you started, we've shared a few articles and resources on effective PD, new teacher support, as well as a professional learning strategy called "The Wagon Wheel." Watch for our updated professional learning offerings, including some fun and engaging summer opportunities!
