With an eye on the future, the Arizona Teacher Program builds capacity for teacher leadership, while providing support to the newest members of the teaching profession. By supporting teachers across the continuum of practice, the Arizona K12 Center's Arizona Teacher Program offers long-term, sustainable solutions to the challenges facing Arizona's schools.
The Arizona K12 Center improves teaching and learning in Arizona's schools through high quality professional development and teacher leadership. The Center is honored to celebrate 20 years in Arizona! You might recognize this Arizona student. Let's watch as Michaela shares how she is going places because of great teaching.
The Arizona K12 Center at Northern Arizona University provides professional development in the areas of learning, leadership, and technology. The Center was founded in 1999 by Governor Jane Hull. She wanted a place dedicated to professional development for teachers. The children in our classrooms today and the ones to come tomorrow are the reason the Arizona K12 Center exists. Our goal is to provide quality professional learning opportunities for Arizona's K-12 teachers. Bottom line...when we support teachers, we are supporting Arizona's students and their families. The Arizona K12 Center has been supporting Arizona’s teachers for the past 15 years. We know that it is the teacher in the classroom that has the potential to make the greatest difference in the lives of Arizona’s students. It is our mission to support the teaching and learning in Arizona’s classroom because our students are “not getting any younger.”
The Arizona K12 Center supports Arizona’s teachers to new and improved practice. When we help teachers be their best, we are helping our students to do the same. Watch this video to learn more about our work.
