Challenge Our professional development efforts are not having much impact in classrooms


Many of our teachers take advantage of a range of development opportunities. They enroll in well-established and popular graduate programs at a local university. They attend NCTM regional, state and national meetings. And they take advantage of district sponsored summer workshops. Our teachers clearly grow, as people and as professionals. However, the impact on the classroom experiences of students in our schools is disappointing. Could we do better and, if so, how?
