Our mission is simple: provide high-quality professional learning opportunities for educators to enrich their teaching practice and improve student learning and achievement.

    • Embed professional learning into the daily practice of teaching for all content areas

    • Recognize that professional growth is integral to teachers’ work by providing professional learning for preservice teachers, new teachers, and veteran teachers

    • Maximize professional learning in the Next Generation Learning Standards and Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM)

    • Promote communities of learners and encourage teacher leadership roles

    • Uphold our promise to students by supporting Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Culturally Responsive Education (CRE) and provide strategies and resources to meet the needs of diverse learners
