Teacher Professional Development Opportunities

The Foundation has underwritten the cost of a professional education library for the teachers, and in the fall of 2007 and 2008, sponsored an important teacher professional development opportunity — Dr. Janet Richardson’s highly regarded guided reading seminars. The teacher feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Please see below:

Teacher Feedback on Training

“This was by far the best guided reading training I have attended in my ten years of teaching. Thank you.”

“Overall, the training was wonderful. . .”

“Since this is my first year teaching, I have gained a lot from this workshop. I became more aware of wh to focus on in my guided reading groups as well as how to address students’ needs.”

“These workshops were, on the whole, the most helpful training that I’ve been a part of in Montgomery County.”

“This training was excellent — probably the most helpful and useful in specific ways that I have been a part of in my 13 years of teaching.”
