Seguin ISD Professional Learning

September 2019 Opportunities

Professional Learning...Not Just a Summer Fling!

Learning happens anytime we reflect on something we have experienced. That experience could be a formal professional learning workshop we have taken part in, a quote we heard or read, a video we watched, or book we read.

At Seguin ISD, we strive to provide professional learning experiences that meet the needs of our staff and support student achievement. Each month, we will provide a newsletter highlighting professional learning opportunities that may help you meet YOUR learning goals. See the information and links below for September's options. Happy learning!
