Professional Development Portfolio
The CRLP focuses on student achievement and grounds all professional development activities in student work and student outcomes based on research in order to inform teacher practice and assess teacher leadership. CRLP believes in providing teachers with opportunities to engage in and learn from the practice of the discipline (reading and literature). CRLP supports the development and promotion of teacher leadership in many forms and through various channels.
