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 life-long learning, then we need to model that attitude and life style for our students. There is no better way to do this than to be life-long learners ourselves.

Some of the best professional development comes from spending a day with colleagues learning with and from each other. The CAIS Commission on Professional Development website exists to provide opportunities for colleagues to network and learn about best practices, curriculum innovation, and pedagogical techniques that will significantly and positively impact learning for our students.
