Project Spotlight

One unique approach to professional development has been working behind the scenes of what it means to build out an effective and sustainable professional learning plan for a large group of teachers. Alongside client Missy Fraze, director of Anchorage School District’s CTE Department (Career and Technical Education), The Umi Project designed an in-depth, capacity building professional learning plan to support teachers in implementing literacy strategies throughout CTE subjects.

Chief Academic Officer , DreamHouse ‘Ewa Beach

I have learned so much over the course of the past six weeks. I not only have a better understanding of PBP, but I also have tools that I can utilize now and when I start at DreamHouse. I feel like I am now filtering everything through a student-centered lens, which will help me grow in my practice. I also feel closer as a team, learning more about everyone.
