As professional learning evolves overtime, there are numerous ways in which teachers can learn and grow including PLCs, lesson study, peer observation, self-study, distance/blended learning and attending face-to-face courses with colleagues in central Florida. Each of these methods of learning contributes to professional growth. As reflective practitioners, educators are accountable
to ensure personal learning results in a change in practice that increases student achievement.
