Professional Development

Teacher professional development refers to specialized training, education, and advanced professional learning intended to help teachers and other educators improve their knowledge, skills, competence, and effectiveness. It can be delivered in person or online, through one-on-one interactions or in group situations, during the school day or beyond normal school hours. Professional development may be funded by schools, districts, or state programs, and are conducted by highly experienced educational consultants.

Curriculum & Instruction

Response to Intervention (RTI) is an approach that provides early and systematic support to students with learning and behavioral needs. Students who are underperforming are given interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate the rate of learning. INcompassing Education can help implement RTI in your school by providing high-quality professional development and educational consulting.

Behavior

In an ideal setting, a classroom should have a teacher facilitating lessons, while the students are carefully listening, learning, and collaborating about a particular subject. But in reality, that scenario may be different from what’s happening in many classrooms.

Usually, teachers have students with difficult behavior problems in their classrooms. These students engage in behaviors that can be disruptive to the whole class. It can set off a chain reaction, affecting not only the teacher but other students as well. Educational consulting and professional development can help educators develop skills on how to address this issue.

Behavior

Classroom management is the process of making sure that lessons run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students. It is the series of actions that teachers do to create a successful learning environment. For many teachers, it is one of the most challenging aspects of teaching. In fact, some teachers leave the profession because they find it hard to manage classrooms. Professional development aims to help educators by teaching them classroom management strategies.

Professional Development
