This is NOT a workshop

This is not a workshop, nor will any other posts in this blog be. This is not professional development as it has been defined for the last 10 years for teachers. Its my experience that a workshop rarely changes teaching. Experiences change teaching. What has been a professional development experience that changed the way you teach?


  1. Mentoring has changed my teaching. I think that just being in another teacher's classroom that actually cares about doing a GREAT job inspires you to become better yourself. Unfortunately, not every class I've been in has had that impact, but it's nice to have the opportunity.

    PS - Like the ranting!

  2. Thanks Brenda! Let me know if you have any thoughts on what you would keep/change if we could completely revamp the EYT program without PRAXIS in the picture.
