I overheard someone say that Professional Development is not important. Well, if you know anything about Education you’ll know it is vital to successful teaching.
I spent the last couple of days this week learning about Purposeful Play (Discovery Learning) with pre-k and kindergarten teachers. It was an amazing two days discovering with teachers and journeying into classrooms full of experimenting bright children. So much learning took place. I can’t even imagine days like these taken away from me.
So, if I hear that person say this again I will be sure to remind them about the beauty of professional development and getting into those classrooms. We have so many unnoticed gems in our classrooms. Professional development is a MUST!
