Teachers Attend Modern Language Seminar
For Grier teachers, learning never stops! For example, four teachers from Grier's Modern Language Department attended a program at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. The IUP Annual Spring Methodology Conference on Foreign Language Teaching provides professional development to Grier's language teachers, keeping their classroom approaches and philosophies aligned with current best practices. They apply this knowledge to their Grier classrooms, providing premier language instruction in French and Spanish.
Many Grier faculty members seek professional development opportunities through the pursuit of advanced degrees and graduate level coursework, via membership in professional organizations, attendance at conferences and workshops, webinars, and many other ways. In fact, many teachers will use the summer break as an opportunity to further develop their classroom knowledge and pedagogical skills.
