Continuous and embedded professional development is the key for raising student achievement and we take it seriously at Harmony. Every Wednesday afternoon our teachers collaborate in a Professional Learning Community (PLC) to share their struggles and what works in a focused and powerful way. Outside of the formal PLC structure, our teachers share their planning periods every day. Informally, you will often see our teachers working together after school into the evening hours.
Customizable professional learning maps are built-in online to our math, English language arts, and science curricula. It allows teachers to reflect on and take control of their own PD, building content knowledge and instructional capacity that they can take directly to the classroom.
