The ultimate goal of teaching is for students to learn. Obvious, right? We know this is true; we believe it's true. And yet, as Carl Jung said, "You are what you do, not what you say you'll do." What does it look like when a teacher truly embraces the belief that the ultimate goal is student learning?

Over the last two years, the SEED team has worked diligently to provide meaningful professional development opportunities for teachers across the Northwestern Colorado BOCES region. This learning ranges from semester long courses, to a much lesser commitment of a few hours in the the SEED PAK, where users can read, watch or otherwise engage in open-source, high quality resources.

Colorado Teacher Quality Standard II, Element D sets the expectation that “Teachers adapt their teaching for the benefit of all students, including those with special needs, across the range of ability levels.” This semester a cohort of teachers working in northwest Colorado districts are exploring ways to increase their expertise in this area by participating in the Spring 2017 SEED Teacher Learning Community: Engaging All Students In Learning.
