Professional Development - defined as the opportunity to improve skills and knowledge to maintain and improve oneself within a specific profession.
As educators, we are always looking to improve our practice with the goal of helping our students reach their fullest potential. By adding to our knowledge and skills tool belt, we are able to build stronger relationships with our students, and it's these relationships that allow us to facilitate learning experiences that engage, inspire, motivate, and empower them.
Even though we strive to improve our practice through a variety of professional development venues, finding the time to do so is another story. NWF's Eco-Schools USA team recognizes that it is important to provide you with opportunities to further your content knowledge and stay up-to-date on best practice, as well as offer continuing education credit for the time you spend improving your practice.
