To Learn Is To Grow

As educators, teaching – and learning – is a natural, daily part of the profession. No matter what the role, be it classroom teacher, building administrator, custodial crew member, or coach, there is much value in the process of learning. As we learn, we grow in our trades and reflect that upon the students we interact with each and every day.

The Johnston Community School District places importance in dedicated time and resources to help our employees participate in opportunities to learn. From weekly early outs to dedicated professional learning days, along with support from instructional coaches and TLI team, employees need only to express interest to participate in focused learning.

Questions related to professional learning in Johnston can be directed to members of the Teaching, Learning, and Innovation department.
