What lies at the foundation of great teaching?
Becoming a great teacher is a career-long journey that requires one to think deeply about their day-to-day teaching strategies in order to strengthen their practice. A great teacher takes time to reflect and make appropriate adjustments. Students deserve to be in vibrant classrooms where they experience enthusiasm and a passion for learning.
Dynamic, in-depth professional development shared teacher to teacher, allows for expanded knowledge as it applies to curriculum, instruction and assessment methods, social-emotional learning, diversity, equity, resiliency, and leadership.
"Life as a teacher begins the day you realize that you're always a learner."
