    Collegial Circles: Perfect for Teacher Collaboration!
    Collegial Circles provide educators with structured time for collegial support and study as well as an opportunity for
     reflection on classroom practices. Bonus:  Make your own hours!  The program enables educators to identify needs for professional growth and to satisfy these needs through sharing and group problem-solving. Therefore, a formal support process, Collegial Circles, is established for sharing expertise and for problem-solving through group processes. In-service credit can be earned by active participation and attendance.  Want more information?  Click on the "Digital Collegial Circles" link in the left toolbar.
