Professional Development

PD for Non-74/Vocational CTE Educators

 

Activities are related to Jon Gordon's presentation, "The Power of a Positive Educator."

Join our Google Classroom (code: tvqftam) entitled CVTE Professional Development and find professional development activities related to Jon Gordon's presentation, "The Power of a Positive Educator."

Begin with a video presentation by Gordon, in which he discusses building a positive school and classroom climate, celebrating success, believing in students, and developing positive relationships.

Then complete the posted activities that provide opportunities for teachers to set goals around these themes in their own practice. Participants will also be invited to a virtual follow-up conversation in which we will share our learnings and applications.
