Hi Edna,

We might not have teachers who are familiar with PD. Could you just change that to professional development? Thank you!


Good point. Done!
This is a powerful thing to discuss, Edna. Particularly relevant to me after my experiences at Mt. Scopus and then coming here and trying to think about how to set up the most effective and meaningful PD possible for teachers in this school. Looking forward to sharing ideas in your session.
