Building a Developmentally Appropriate Professional Development System
In Tucson, the United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona is working to build a new early childhood professional development system. With funding from all five First Things First Regional Partnership Councils in Pima County, we have created 10 Communities of Practice. Each one of them is helping to build a high quality system for teaching early childhood teachers to be the best that they can be. We call our new system-building work “Great Expectations for Teachers, Children, and Families.”
