We are an approved provider for professional development hours in several states, including our home state, Pennsylvania! We offer certified educators a variety of courses to quickly and affordably satisfy their professional development requirements as put forth in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Each course was written by an active certified school teacher. The skills taught by the courses are designed to help you develop professionally and will be integrated into the classroom for improved student achievement. Online courses are intended to maximize the quality of your time spent working on professional development at a price that rivals the local college courses. New courses are being written and updated constantly so please, keep checking back!
School districts and state law requires school teachers to maintain a level of professional development. These requirements can be satisfied in many ways, such as: In-services, workshops, college courses and advanced degrees to name a few. In-services may not be available to all teachers or may not provide enough hours to satisfy the requirements. College courses and advanced degrees are time consuming and expensive. Now, there is another way.
The Teacher's Academy is the logical answer for all professionals to satisfy some or all of your required professional development hours.
