Hoover Professional Learning Academy
Impact on Education will be supporting the design and opening of a Professional Development Academy within BVSD that will train, coach, and mentor teachers in a venue provided by BVSD. Training sessions will focus on how to use technology and innovative learning spaces to enhance science, math, reading comprehension and other content areas. The Academy has hired a Director and a staff person to develop the courses using new technologies, teaching new state content standards, and showing how to effectively evaluate student learning. Ultimately, the Academy will be open to any teacher in the State who chooses to attend a class.
