Professional Development & Developing Professional Goals
Through my work in the Michigan State University Masters of Arts in Teaching and Curriculum program, I have come to learn a great deal about the importance of Professional Development. Professional Development, also known as PD to many of us, can evoke a range of emotions from excitement to dread, with the latter being unacceptable. Why is it that we sometimes dread our PD?
Now it's time to pick one to focus on and create a SMART goal for myself. Look for it soon!
