Professional Development

Basic Information: Professional learning is a lifetime commitment to continuous improvement. This is a goal we have for students and, as teachers, need to model ourselves. Teaching methods, core curriculum and the addition of STEM components to science instruction make it imperitive that teachers stay current in their knowledge and skills. The following research-based workshops are one way to reach this goal.

Classes for Credit: The following courses are offered for inservice credit and/or university credit.

The Standards and Objectives were rewritten in simple 'I Can' statements so students and parents could easily understand what their student was learning in their science class. The following links will take you to the appropriate 'I Can' statements for each course.
