A recent PD day at John Knox Christian School sparked the idea to delve into the topic in a podcast.
Principal Michael Meinema explains why the school is committed to professional growth, noting teachers need to be lifelong learners in order to effectively engage students in learning.
He says teachers are asked to be knowledgeable, current and passionate about a wide variety of topics, so opportunities are put into place to allow teachers to be the best they can be.
The Woodstock school hosts monthly professional growth meetings, and this year is focusing on assessment and evaluation.
