Learn how a unique approach to professional learning helped a school principal offer personalized PD for teachers--with great success

In May, when edWeb.net surveyed principals, personalized PD for teachers was the number one topic of interest. With all the responsibilities and tasks on principals’ plates, relevant, engaging PD focused on best practices can be extremely challenging.
