Professional Development

Professional development is vital to a school’s success, because it is designed to strengthen a teacher's knowledge of content and thus improve student achievement.

A successful career in the teaching ministry is dependent on teacher growth and improvement. The teacher, as a professional, is responsible for their own continued growth. In order to meet the ever changing demands of the profession, the teacher must be up to date with current techniques and strategies. The professional success of a Christian teacher will have a positive impact, not only on the academic success of the student, but should also facilitate a meaningful relationship between the student and our heavenly Father.
