The Elementary Science Program knows the importance of providing teachers with the professional development they need to feel comfortable teaching science and using the science materials provided in our units. ESP provides numerous opportunities for teachers to be trained in the use of our units and/or the technology resources we provide. Our schedule of workshops comes out twice a year: Summer/Fall and Winter/Spring.
The current schedule of professional development opportunities at ESP can be found in the document below. To register for one of the sessions, visit our course registration page
