Welcome to CAIS PD
CAIS believes that great teachers are not born but become great with training, support, and a commitment to ongoing professional development. As educators, we strive to inspire students to develop personally as well as intellectually and to pursue such growth for a lifetime. If we want to instill in our students a commitment to lifelong learning, then we educators need to model that attitude and lifestyle for our students. There is no better way to do this than to be lifelong learners ourselves.
The CAIS Commission on Professional Development Hub connects schools to professional development offerings as well as to colleagues, both inside and outside CAIS, who can provide innovative programming for your community.
