Riverside Hosts WIC Professional Development Day

Registration at WIC PDOn Monday, January 15th, Riverside hosted  a Professional Development day for several schools in the Western Iowa Conference. 

Other schools in the Conference sent representatives, but Underwood, Treynor, Tri-Center, Riverside, IKM-Manning, and Logan-Magnolia (Secondary) sent the majority of their teachers.  Approximately 320 teachers participated in the day’s professional learning.


In the morning, there were two keynote speakers, Martha Bruckner (former Superintendent at Council Bluffs CSD and Iowa's 2016 Superintendent of the Year) and Matt Carver (Legal Services Director for School Administrators of Iowa).  Following these keynotes, there were a variety of breakout sessions available for teachers to choose from, which were facilitated by teachers, teacher leaders, and Green Hills AEA staff members.  Breakout sessions were designed to share new and innovative instructional strategies, educational technology, and methods to help all students achieve success at school.  Below are breakout sessions offered to teachers:  Keynote Speaker Martha Bruckner at WIC PD

PE Collaboration Group

In the afternoon, teachers had the opportunity to collaborate with grade-level and/or content-area colleagues.  Agendas for the afternoon collaboration sessions were built by each individual group, facilitated by a teacher from one of the participating districts.

Science Collaboration Group at WIC PDThis was an outstanding opportunity for teachers across districts to learn from one another and discuss the newest technologies, strategies, and methods to improve student learning opportunities.  The first Western Iowa Conference Professional Development day was held in Underwood in 2016, and last year was set to be held at Riverside but was canceled due to weather.  We are very excited to have hosted this year and had a tremendous day of professional learning!
