Professional Development Protocol​

Professional Development Protocol

Below are resources to help support you plan and deliver effective professional development that prioritizes the experience of your participants over the content being delivered. 

The purpose of the Protocol is to provide a district-wide framework of evidence-based best practices to design and deliver professional development. It is intended to increase engagement of the participants while focusing on content and best instructional practices. The professional development protocol is a fluid guide allowing for multiple contextualized presentation styles and individual creativity.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
