Even teachers go to school! This month, Ms. Morgan attended training certifying her to teach AP Biology. Training took place at the Taft Educational Center in Waterbury, Connecticut, which has been offering educational workshops since 1976. Here's a picture of Ms. Morgan with her instructor, and a lab she conducted as part of her certification. Our school offers a variety of AP courses.
In addition to her AP Biology training this summer, Ms. Morgan is also taking part in a Curriculum Assessment Course offered by the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching. This 15 week course offers in-depth training on preparing effective effective student assessments. As many colleges and Universities continue to scrutinize the value of standardized testing as a measure of student's academic abilities, this is a wonderful and timely course. We love the fact that our students aren't the only ones who love learning.
