Professional Development for Teaching English Language Proficiency

"We have an innate desire to endlessly learn, grow, and develop. We want to become more than what we already are. Once we yield to this inclination for continuous and never-ending improvement, we lead a life of endless accomplishments and satisfaction." — Chuck Gallozzi

Teachers are endlessly learning, growing and developing the next generation and themselves. This webpage will be updated regularly with some of the many opportunities available for continued professional growth in the area of English Language proficiency.
