At the SIEC, we are committed to meeting the needs of our educators. Member schools can take advantage of one free mini-session (up to 2 hrs) each school year. This could be done during a staff meeting, after school, or during a PD day. These mini-sessions could take place with a group of teachers after school, during school in grade level meetings, at faculty meetings or administrative meetings. The only cost is mileage for the presenter as this is “added value” for being an SIEC member. To further your professional learning planning and to extend learning, we can offer follow-up support such as coaching, modeling, planning, additional sessions, etc.
Contact Judy, DeAnne, or Julie to help you design professional learning mini-sessions that are custom built for your specific staff needs.
