Got a stack of professional development notes in your bottom drawer? Not anymore…


There’s a reason you do professional development. Teachers who receive an average of 49 hours of PD increased their students’ achievement by approximately 21 percentage points, according to the Institute of Education Sciences. Similarly, research from Stanford University shows sustained learning — 30 to 100 hours over a year — increases achievement in the classroom.

But, of course, those results vary. Two potential variables: the quality of your continuing education, and what you do with it.

We know of a few ways to make your learning count. See the complete list of Arizona K12 Center learning events here. Or, download the list here.

Vanessa Zurita, an English language development technology coach in the Cartwright School District, shares her five tips for maximum learning — and how to share it with your colleagues.

“While being a coach is similar to being a teacher — I, too, need to know the strengths, needs, and interests of the students — I must also know how to support educators so they can take their teaching to the next level,” Zurita says.
