Teacher Workshops Overview
"Education is improving the lives of others for leaving your community and world better than you found it." - Marian Wright Edelman
Join McDowell Educational Programs for a day or a weekend throughout the year at one of our many teacher workshops. Many of our teacher workshops meet the criteria and are approved for AMSTI & Powerschool Credits and are TEAMS approved. These high quality PD opportunities are a great way to visit McDowell, connect with other educators, and earn your continuing education credits. Whether you need the credits, or you just want to expand your curriculum by picking up some new and fun ideas for your classroom, you will find what you need at a McDowell Teacher Workshop! Check out the sessions below. Email Meredith at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
