Panther Wednesday at Geneva High School benefits teachers
"Professional development is huge in the line of education and those opportunities are few and far between so this gives our teachers a chance to be here, get professional development right here on site," assistant principal at Geneva High School, Michael Crews said.
The hallways may seem a little empty at Geneva High School, that's because of a new program they are calling Panther Wednesday.
The 45 minute program gives students a delayed start and opportunities for teachers to have meetings, planning time and professional development.
Teachers will learn a variety of skills every other Wednesday morning of each month, so those who have clubs, practice and other after school activities can meet before school.
"It just makes me feel more prepared, each morning that we have a panther Wednesday I just feel like I've attended a faculty meeting and I've gotten all of this wealth of knowledge I'm just ready to go back into the classroom and incorporate it," math teacher at Geneva High School, Carri Day said.
This Panther Wednesday teachers went over objectives for college readiness for students.
