Are you looking for some formal professional development?
Today, I am pleased to invite you to the 18th annual Prairie Region Great Teacher Seminar. This unique seminar began in Illinois in 1969 and still follows the same unusual format today. The Great Teacher Seminar format supports the strong belief that teachers learn to teach from other teachers through discussion and exploration of teaching strategies, innovations, and problem solving. The goal of GTS is to identify the characteristics of the “Great Teacher".
It has been my joy to be involved with GTS since its inception in the Prairies.

If you are already great, or genuinely interested in becoming great, this seminar is for you. Applications are due Friday, March 20th. For all the details, visit www.rrc.ca/gts.
