Teacher Development

Building a Culture of Professional Learning 

The most effective powerful way to raise student achievement is through professional learning. Effective professional development is:

·         Planned over time, sustained, rigorous and embedded within the context of the school

·         Fosters collaboration within schools and across districts

·         Uses data to directly link to the school goals

·         Is evidence-based and data-driven both to guide improvement and measure impact

·         Is differentiated and ensures an intensive focus on the teaching-learning relationship 


Miami-Dade County Public School educators leverage professional learning to ensure every student has an equal opportunity to learn at high levels. M-DCPS provides professional development that is comprehensive, ongoing, intensive and designed to improve educators’ effectiveness in raising student achievement.


“It’s more important than ever that educators collaborate to continually improve and support the success of each learner.”

Dr. Gene R. Carter, CEO and Executive Director of ASCD
