Professional Development

Why professional development?

The Aspiring Educators / WEAC Region 9 is devoted to professional development. By providing resources and opportunities for professional development, Aspiring Educators hopes to encourage the new generation of teachers to continue to learn how to be the best educators that they can be. In a state where educators are often not seen as professionals, evident by previously proposed legislation that lowers teacher certification standards, it is therefore important that educators take charge of their professional development. Through Aspiring Educators, aspiring educators can access resources to ensure that every child in our schools has the chance to succeed.
