GALAs and Workshops

  • Research, insights from practice, and common sense converge around the understanding that skilled teachers have a significant impact on student learning.  Helping teachers develop the knowledge, skills, and understanding they need begins with rigorous, on-going teacher training and support programs.

    Growth and Learning Academies are designed to provide timely, job-related learning experiences for teachers.  GALA sessions are offered at least three (3) times per year and are available for MSDE credit towards recertification or for stipend. Registration is required for these sessions.
