The day was orchestrated to prepare and energize teachers for the school year ahead. More than 400 teachers from Leona's 17 Michigan campuses participated in the event, which featured training, networking, collaboration and prizes.
The day included four professional development sessions covering 33 different topics including co-teaching, targeted instruction, data-driven instruction, using technology to increase student engagement, SAT strategies and prep, advanced placement and dual enrollment, special education modifications, accommodations and laws, Naiku, online instruction, data best practices, formative assessments, classroom management and many other engaging and informative targeted PD sessions.
The event culminated in a prize drawing for gift cards and two round-trip airfare tickets to their choice destination. It was a great day of learning, collaborating, bonding and celebrating the dedication of our teachers and the mission behind the work to educate students.
