Description
Teacher’s Choice is an opportunity for second year and beyond CREC teachers to identify and pursue learning experiences specifically tailored to the needs of your school and classroom. The Teacher’s Choice process reinforces CREC’s Core Values by providing time to engage in self-directed, collaborative learning in order to develop creative solutions to educational challenges to meet the needs of our students. Our hope is that as you work in partnership with your colleagues, you will see an immediate impact on your practice and your students’ learning. (Note: Beginning teachers will be part of a New Teacher Cohort PLC on Teacher's Choice days.)
Objectives
Certified Staff will participate in a professional learning community to investigate creative solutions to educational challenges related to Equity, Instruction or Relationships. Teachers will apply their learning to their unique roles and help to identify and share what works at CREC schools.
