Professional Development for Teachers

Professional development and continuing your education after you begin teaching is key to remaining at the top of your game.

If you’re lucky enough to work in a school that offers training opportunities, take them.

Not only will you learn new information and skills to benefit your class; you will look like someone who takes pride in their job.

Principals love to see people furthering their skills.

I am lucky enough to work in a system where I can take an unlimited amount of training sessions every year. I jump on almost all of them. Even if it doesn’t directly impact my classroom I can take the knowledge back to school and share it with co-workers.

I also love training sessions because you can talk to other teachers and discuss what they are doing and what is working.

If your district does not offer trainings, try to attend trainings by Staff Development for Educators or Staff Development Resources

Both of these organizations put on amazing trainings that are well worth the money.
