The best way to teach our students to be lifelong learners is to model lifelong learning. Professional development isn't just a workshop or a graduate course, it's a never-ending journey for knowledge.
In addition to modeling the importance of lifelong learning, professional development benefits our students by ensuring that our "teacher as coach" approach to education is always meeting the evolving needs of our students.
CCS faculty and staff members participate in monthly professional development activities, attend conferences, travel to other Project-based Learning schools, and even present at several education conferences each year! CCS faculty and staff members are fully committed to lifelong learning and continuing to better a CCS education every day.
