Professional Development is important to continue to promote the Geography Teacher as an important part of the education community. Our teachers get this training both in a pre-service and service situation, and these activities and training
strengthen our knowledge and abilities to better prepare students in our classroom at whatever level the education is taking place.
This session will examine several different PD experiences, and show the impacts of such experiences.
