What do teachers do on Professional Development Day? It's a question often asked. The answer is participation in a tremendous amount of training and collaborative planning. Today, with a focus on technology and itts application in the classroom,our teachers, paraprofessionals, tutors and administrators chose from a variety of offerings that included Google, STEM, interim assessments and progress monitoring, phonemic awareness,,Brain Gym, grade book, website design, IPad use in the classroom, curriculum development and NEASC preparation. Included are some photos from the day's workshops. We are grateful for the time to learn and grow as professionals and to take our knowledge and skills back to the classroom for the benefit of our children.
