Years of experience as a teacher have thought me that on-going professional development and enrichment are essential to increase educators’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and beliefs so that they can assist students in reaching high levels of learning. Professional development that is most effective in improving educator practice is results-oriented, data driven, constructivist in nature and job embedded.
Professional enrichment includes regular meetings with eager, enthusiastic educators who are experiencing success and satisfaction along their career path and planned gatherings that allow for both structured and unstructured conversations. It’s relationships that increase retention in this vocation.
