Why do educators hate PD?


7 Reasons Why Teachers Hate Professional Development

1. They think the subject matter is irrelevant, abstract and frankly boring.

2. There's a catch; when I find something that's applicable to my teaching, I invariably have to purchase/order something in order to have effective implementation.

3. Too Much Preparatory Work; I don't have enough time to write lesson plans, as it is!

4. They hate it when their time is wasted.

5. They hate it when PD doesn’t have immediate impact in the classroom.

6. They hate it when their learning isn’t relevant.

7.They hate it when they don’t have options.


As the person responsible for sheduling PD for the faculty and staff at your school, I’m sure you could list many more reasons - complaints you’ve heard time and again.

What if PD didn’t have to be any of those negative things, but could actually be relevant, productive, fun, engaging, practical and immediately actionable for yor teachers and staff?

What if the educators at your school enjoyed their professional development inservices so much, that they actually asked you when the next session would be, they immediately applied what they learned, and the entire culture at your school made a posotive shift, as a direct result of the profossesional development experience they received?

That’s what makes our professional development inservices unique, different, and quite frenkly . . . just better.
