Excellence in Teacher Summer Institute

Prince Edward County Public Schools (PECPS) recently hosted the Excellence in Teaching Summer Institute sponsored by the Office of Curriculum and Instruction. New and returning teachers were invited on campus to this dynamic three-day professional development series. Fifty-five teachers attended this phenomenal program designed to provide tools to excite and engage our students! Over twenty sessions were offered. Presenters included Longwood University staff, PECPS staff, a Promethean representative, Virginia Commonwealth University and other educator guests. The sessions covered a variety of topics which allowed our educators an opportunity to have hands-on experiences with existing technology used at PECPS. For example, teachers learned how to fly drones. Other sessions facilitated open conversations about topics such as trauma and fostering a love of writing. Opportunities were given to plan and exchange ideas during the institute. Grand Canyon University and Longwood University served as our community partners for this program.
