The PD Hub provides professional learning opportunities for all educators that are aligned to the Kent Intermediate Superintendent Association (KISA) Goals. Twice a month, we send out an electronic newsletter called The Bulletin, keeping educators informed about the hottest topics in education and upcoming PL opportunities. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you or your district.
MARY NELL BALDWIN, PD CONSULTANT
I plan and produce professional learning programs, frequently working in collaboration with other Kent ISD and contracted consultants, as well as work with groups using Kent ISD facilities to provide professional learning/training, ex. Kent Reading Council and Odyssey of the Mind. I also work with special professional learning projects, such as Groundswell (Environmental Science/Place-based Learning). Please contact me with questions about the content of workshops, SCECHs or graduate credit, presenter information, your professional learning needs, presenter availability to your building/district, planned future offerings, and your suggestions for future professional learning at Kent ISD.
In addition to Professional Learning, contact me with your questions about Spelling Bee, Kent Academically Talented Youth Program (ATYP), Gifted & Talented, New Teacher requirements, and We the People (Center for Civic Education).
