On October 30, 2014 teachers at both Dana and Correia attended two Professional Development opportunities.
Those teachers who work with a co-teacher in their classroom attended professional development about how to make the most of the relationship between them and the second teacher in the classroom in order to provide the most benefit to students in the class. Also what co-teaching looks like according to theory. This was given by Stephanie Brown and her co-teacher from previous years.
Other teachers attended QTEL professional development which helps teachers learn about the needs of the English Language Learners in their classrooms and how to best support them to make content accessible to them. This was given by the districts OLA office.
