Why Is Teacher Development Important?: Because Students Deserve the Best

It is critical for teachers to have ongoing and regular opportunities to learn from each other. Ongoing professional development keeps teachers up-to-date on new research on how children learn, emerging technology tools for the classroom, new curriculum resources, and more. The best professional development is ongoing, experiential, collaborative, and connected to and derived from working with students and understanding their culture.
 
Great teachers are made, not born. Even small improvements in teacher effectiveness can impact student achievement. Acquire new tools and strategies to become the best teacher you can be.
