GUELPH, ON, July 22, 2016 /CNW/ - Catholic teachers across Ontario will be devoting time and energy this summer to boost their qualifications and improve their practice. Some are participating in Additional Qualifications courses, which enable teachers to explore subjects in-depth and add to their credentials. Others are taking part in one-day or three-day workshops, which offer focused learning on specific topics.
These self-directed professional development opportunities – which are offered for teachers, by teachers – reflect our commitment to lifelong learning, and our desire to provide the best possible learning environment for all students.
"While it is important that we take some time to rest and recharge after the school year, teachers are constantly looking to upgrade our knowledge and skills," says Mark Berardine, President of the Wellington Unit of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association. "Our Association is proud to provide these opportunities for professional growth over the summer months."
