  7. District’s Professional Development Day...

On Wednesday, Oct. 9, Averill Park Central School District held its professional development day, AP Transforms, for faculty and staff.

Keynote speaker George Couros started the day off with an inspiring speech that focused on innovation and having a student-first mindset. Couros challenged teachers to go beyond their comfort zone and embrace new technology and social media platforms.

Throughout the day, staff members led sessions that focused on a wide variety of topics, showcasing different methods of teaching and technology being used in the classroom. Three sessions featured students as co-presenters.

A special thanks to the high school students that prepared breakfast and light refreshments, and to food trucks BOWLicious! and Michele’s Charcoal Pit for lunch.
