Improving Teacher Satisfaction with Professional Development
MetadataShow full item record
Our middle school has a Professional Development Team (PDT) which consists of teachers and administrators that meets to plan for staff professional development. A Likert Scale survey was administered to measure levels of staff satisfaction with a variety of elements of professional development. The most obvious trend was that for nearly every question where monthly all-staff meetings were compared to grade level meetings, the satisfaction was higher for the grade level meetings, and was quite low for all-staff meetings. With the all-staff meetings being the area where teachers expressed the lowest levels of satisfaction, this plan presents options to improve this area of professional development.
