No School for Students: Teacher Workday

There will be no school for students on January 12, 2018.  This day is a Teacher Workday.

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

Great teachers help create great students. In fact, research shows that an inspiring and informed teacher is the most important school-related factor influencing student achievement, so it is critical to pay close attention to how we train and support both new and experienced educators.

Just as professionals in medicine, architecture, and law have opportunities to learn through examining case studies, teacher workdays allow teachers the time to prepare for the next semester of instruction by studying previous learning experiences and assessment results of that learning.

Ongoing Professional Development

It is critical for veteran 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.
