• Demonstration Teacher Network  
     
    The Demonstration Teacher Network (DTN) is a yearlong learning experience that examines what makes great teachers great and empowers teachers along all stages of their career to continue to grow. The aim of this network is multifaceted: demonstration teachers will attend collaborative sessions that highlight the practice of reflection;  participate in job-embedded activities; and provide a venue for other practitioners, in particular, zero year teachers, to observe authentic teacher practice and student learning. 

    The Demonstration Classroom Teacher Will:
    • Support a level of instructional consistency in Crowley ISD
    • Reflect on their current practices to intentionally improve instructional quality
    • Demonstrate a strong understanding of instructional best practices
    • Help link theory to practice by providing an in-district venue to see best practices in action
    • Participate in job-embedded, continuous learning experiences designed to provide opportunities for   growth in instructional expertise and practitioner research
    • Contribute to the district video library that serves as a resource for other teachers in Crowley ISD
    • Present instructional best practices during district professional learning opportunities
