We all want to learn. We just want to learn in the way that meets our individual needs and respects our time.
After meeting with all of you and talking with several other districts, I’ve decided to switch gears completely on professional development. We’ll call it Your Time and you’ll be able to choose the time and pace at which you complete each course. The goal will be to complete two courses a month (same as last year). You’ll receive Professional Growth Points after completing each course.
You may choose to complete the courses at home (in your pajamas, no make-up, messy hair, don’t care) or you may schedule time to meet with me, a small group, o r whatever meets your needs at a time that meets your needs. You’ll just click on the topic that you’re choosing to learn more about, follow the steps, then complete the course documentation. Once completed, you’ll receive a PGP certificate and a badge will be placed outside your classroom door.
