While many schools acknowledge the importance of professional development, few make time for teachers to take advantage of it. Educators who are open to learning and constantly revise their practice facilitate the most successful classrooms, where all children experience the joy of learning and working together. At Two Rivers, staff have the time, encouragement, and resources to become even better teachers. Here are some of the many things we’ve been up to thus far in our quest to create the best classrooms by improving our own teaching:
- Off-site conferences and workshops
- On-site workshops
- Professional Guidance EL School Designers
- Reflection and Discussion
- Visits with Other Schools
- Peer Support
The school has a rigorous professional development program that was featured in the book Data Wise in Action: Stories of Schools Using Data to Improve Teaching and Learning published by Harvard University.
