How to use the Administrator Hub

As a school administrator, you want to provide quality teacher professional development for educators in your school. The problem is, articles and resources to support your professional development initiative are scattered across websites and hard to navigate.

That’s why the team at Smekens Education created the Administrator Hub. Here you’ll find an organized assortment of support articles specifically designed for administrators.

With nearly two decades of supporting schools with explicit and engaging professional development, we know what it takes to improve your current PD offerings.

Use the articles and resources included in the Administrator Hub to:

1. Meet the needs of every teacher.
Just like in the classroom, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to professional learning. Educators have unique needs and learning styles that require a carefully designed professional development selection.

2. Be more intentional with PD offerings.
Each day, you juggle a wide variety of roles and responsibilities. It’s no surprise if professional development slides to the back burner! But with student success hanging in the balance, it’s crucial to help your teachers increase their effectiveness.

3. Provide PD that teachers actually enjoy.
You probably know what it’s like to bring in a well-intentioned speaker who ends up putting teachers to sleep. The truth is, teachers are more likely to engage in the PD topic if it’s relevant and if the presenter holds their attention.

Whether you are a school principal, vice principal, curriculum leader, building-level coach, or passionate educator looking to inject some life into your professional development approach, take advantage of the helpful articles found within the Administrator Hub.
