Professional Learning


We love learning. Because new approaches to pedagogy are ever-evolving, so are we. With innovative and diverse opportunities for professional development, year-round, we help teachers and administrators take this learning back to school.

Indeed, more than 27,000 students benefit from the professional development opportunities we offer our members.

Whether it’s a retreat for peer-school colleagues in related fields, a new-teacher orientation day or a training session for CIS-event facilitators, we encourage you to take advantage of our offerings and get involved.

And be sure to explore the benefits of our Cohort 21 learning network. Your eight-month commitment to growth and inquiry included a personal action plan supported by in-person sessions, social media, a dedicated blog and interaction with an active community of educators.

So take some time to explore our calendars of upcoming professional-development and networking events, as well as our popular job-search postings. Be sure to check back often for regular updates.

“I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes only after goals were reached that once seemed scary and lofty.”
