Here are some words we have been using and th8inking about lately:
Ranking among the foremost in the world; of an international standard of excellence; of the highest order: a world-class figure skater.
Professionals Developing…not Professional Development
Professional development..to teachers.. usually means workshops, or one time events, sometimes a series of events intended to show teachers how to do something they are not already doing or something someone else thinks they need to be doing. Its seen as a noun.
When we think about Professionals Developing (thanks Dr. Yeager) we are thinking about a process.. or verb….. that hopefully is more reflective than sausage making.
