3Ps in a Pod

www.azk12.org
Being an educator in the 21st century is indescribably complex. There’s a constant pressure to meet standards and help students achieve, but there’s also a need to allow learners to color outside the lines in an effort to prompt creativity. The Arizona K12 Center believes effective teaching and learning is grounded in quality teacher development and teacher leadership. To support educators along the continuum, the Center developed “3Ps in a Pod” to further dissect practice, policy, and passion in the field of education. Voiced by the organization’s Professional Learning Directors and Associate Director of Programs, Danielle Brown, Donnie Dicus, Mary Field, and Angelia Ebner, “3Ps in a Pod” will feature numerous guests with ideas, perspectives, and stories relevant to what educators do both in and out of the classroom. This is a conversation, not a lecture. Ditch your notebook, but be ready to share. There’s no need to cram for a pop quiz, but we hope you’ll pledge to be a lifelong learner.
