Preview of PD for Next School Year

Budgets are set, people are contacted, and next year is shaping up as another great opportunity for professional development at AES.

Here is just a preview of who we have confirmed and what they will supporting us with next year:

Bambi Betts: Bambi is a widely regarded former school head and professional development consultant.  She runs the Principals and Teachers Training Centers which offer classes in both Miami and London during the summer and specializes in the needs of international educators. Bambi will be here from Oct. 22nd to Oct. 26th to conduct a week of leadership and facilitation training.

Erma Anderson: Erma has been coming to AES for the past few years to support our work in mathematics education. She will be at AES twice next year (Sept. 10th-14th and Feb. 11th-15th) to continue her work with math teachers and to support the efforts of our science teachers as they also consider the current research on best practices and science instruction.

Buffalo SUNY : Buffalo State will continue to have a presence on our campus next year as our first set of graduates finishes off their master’s program and in Spring of 2013 the course Site-Based Leadership will be offered.  COETAIL will continue next year as well, as they too wrap up their first classes for the certificate in Educational Technology.  Please contact Scott White for more details about these programs and potential offerings next year.

We have more exciting offerings in the works and we will keep you posted as these opportunities become available.  If you have any questions, please contact us here in the Curriculum Office.

Professional Development Opportunities for Summer

Just back from winter vacation and we are already thinking about summer?  We ARE teachers right???

Actually, we started thinking about summer PD before the winter break even started and we have posted this document on the blog under the Professional Development tab titled Summer Professional Development Opportunities.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions about any program or opportunity in particular. We will continue to add new PD to this document as it becomes available. Let the summer planning begin!
