Welcome to the Professional Learning opportunities page!  This site is a one-stop-shop for all professional learning needs and opportunities for Durham Public Schools teachers. Our goal is to empower teachers to transform classrooms, grow as educators, learn new teaching strategies, and build professional learning communities for collaboration.  

Professional Learning Core Beliefs:  Professional Learning, informed by research and data, creates a community of highly effective educators who collaborate and reflect on their practice, use high quality instructional materials and implement high leverage strategies that yield increased instructional performance and equitable outcomes for all DPS students. 

Our Vision: “Igniting Effective Teaching & Learning Everyday for Every Child.”
