2016 -2018 Secondary 2-Year Professional Development Plan

We MUST KNOW our STUDENTS before we can GROW our students. By deepening our knowledge of students through the lens of equity, digital learning and
differentiation, we can lead them on the path to authentic learning experiences. In order to complete this successful journey, we must also guide teachers in effective
collaboration and interdisciplinary teaming.
