Our monthly PD days are full of dozens of sessions led by 120 specialists, administrators, and teachers! We’re already thinking about next semester’s courses, so we’d love your suggestions. If you haven’t yet, please fill out our five-question anonymous survey. You can share feedback on the department’s programs or make suggestions for future sessions. It’s the only survey you’ll receive from us this year, so please take a few minutes to share your thoughts.
