This year, I’m thrilled to be partnering with Advancement Courses, courses designed to be more engaging, meaningful, and enjoyable– with real feedback and application in today’s K-12 classroom.
Continuing education can be one of the biggest challenges for us as teachers today.
I feel like I’m always asking:
Where are all the relevant, meaningful courses?
Where are all the courses approved by my school and the state?
Where is the professional development that fits my schedule?
Where is the continuing ed that I can afford to pay–on top of everything else I buy as a teacher?
Where are the courses that fit my insanely busy schedule?
Finding professional development courses that work can be sometimes be ridiculously difficult.
I remember at one time, the “best” courses were something I heard about from a friend of a friend’s colleague’s cousin’s sister. Whispered to me at the pool one summer.
At that time, finding the best professional development courses was like hunting for a buried treasure. And only a few lucky people had the map.
As educators, we need to make sure our teaching certificates stay valid and that we stay on top of the latest research in our field. But it’s not easy with all the demands that teachers face these days.
