Richland Academy’s 2013-2014 Professional Development Workshops

Are you an educator looking to engage in Reggio-inspired learning?

We are a Reggio-inspired Inquiry based school for students in Prek to Grade 6, and we are passionate about what we do.

Many teachers and early learning educators have expressed an interest in professional development at Richland. We are creating a series of programs for learning professionals; including tours, presentations, workshops, and shadowing opportunities – all designed to enrich the learning experiences of teachers and students through a Reggio-inspired inquiry based approach. Richland is currently expanding its facility to become a 21st Century learning and training facility, and we welcome you to share in this journey.
