The NYSAIS Professional Development Committee works with the Associate Director on programs that include two Beginning Teachers Institutes each fall, an Experienced Teachers Institute in the winter, as well as many workshops and conferences for teachers and administrators. Various collaborative efforts with neighboring state associations of independent schools add depth to the program. The Committee works to interpret the needs of NYSAIS professionals, providing timely opportunities for education and networking.
Mission: Cognizant of the needs of all member schools, the NYSAIS Professional Development Committee’s mission is to build and sustain a vibrant, state-wide professional development network. By offering relevant, timely, engaging professional development opportunities, NYSAIS strives to create a culture of professional growth that acts as the foundation for teaching, learning, and collaboration in member schools.
