We have a multi-faceted professional growth program in Haddon Township School District. Educators participate in year-long mini-courses designed around an element of practice such as project-based learning, mindfulness, or standards study. They also perform self-directed professional learning by designing their own learning plan, and every teacher completes a reflective portfolio as a part of their summative evaluation. As frequently as possible, we do classroom pop-ins followed by targeted feedback aligned to district and building goals.
