West Defuniak Elementary facilitated their own teacher-led professional development on Friday, February 12th. Teachers were able to  choose from a variety of different sessions to attend, based on their needs.  These sessions included teacher collaboration, student engagement, and using technology in the classroom. They also had the opportunity to participate in EdCamp and network with colleagues who had similar interests or concerns.  Teachers left the professional development feeling inspired and truly excited!
