The district’s New Teacher Academy, a professional development initiative geared toward supporting teachers in their first four years of work in the district, has grown exponentially over the last year due to new collaboration initiatives and educational technology training. 

Teachers attend after-school professional development sessions to explore different teaching approaches, tools and technology components to bring into their classrooms. Many of the sessions include collaborative conversations via Google Docs and navigating the benefits of platforms like EdPuzzle for both blended learning experiences and stationed activities in the classroom.
