Professional Development Highlights for School Year 2004-2005

Lorraine D. Foster's approach to professional development is to pursue training in an intensive and ongoing manner. In the fall of 2002, the staff attended the Bank Street College of Education in New York City for 5 weekends of training in Mel Levine's "Schools Attuned" program. "Schools Attuned" is based on the study of eight neurodevelopmental constucts that affect how children learn. This year, we will continue the work through monthly in-service training conducted by Andrea M. Spencer, Ph.D.
