Professional development is an important part of a teacher’s career. It is critical that teachers continue learning and do not become stagnant. I love that as teachers we have 24/7 access to teaching ideas through our social media accounts, Google and Pinterest search as well as through books. It is important that as middle school and high school English teachers we continue our professional development through books, workshops and our PLC communities.
