Professional Learning Opportunities for Educators
Educators are committed to life long learning. We are continually looking for professional learning opportunities to increase the relevance between what is taught in the classroom and how students will use that knowledge in their future careers.
School District of New Berlin Career Days
During our annual Career Days, we invite professionals to come in and give 25-minute presentations to our students on their careers. Students have had very positive feedback on these days! Our Career Days are organized in partnership with Junior Achievement.
