AMAZING THINGS ARE HAPPENING - PD

NP3 professional development is quite an amazing opportunity. Many schools are in a place of conforming to district requirements and specifications, and strive to work around these constraints to make time for teams and collaboration. NP3 has the unique opportunity to provide team time within the school day on a weekly basis, in addition to common prep time. It is extraordinary to have this be part of the work week.


PD at NP3 allows us to grow as professionals and build relationships. Everything we do during PD time, effects student learning and choices we make in the classroom. We get to share practices, students, assessments, changes in curriculum and instruction and reflect on our instruction and student learning. It is HARD work, but in the end, impacts why we're all here: to prepare students and provide the best learning experiences and opportunities for them to be successful in the real world.


Way to go NP3! Your hard work is noticed and appreciated!
