Global Education Opportunities for Faculty

Weston Public Schools infuses a global perspective into the curriculum on a regular basis. How do our teachers continually refine their lessons to reflect various global perspectives? Through education and travel our faculty-learn about foreign cultures, customs, foods, music, literature, art, and numerous other aspects of the countries they visit. This knowledge and experience is brought back to co-workers and shared in team meetings, over coffee, and in professional development workshops. Weston is fortunate to have a faculty who continually strive to bring the learning experience to life in a classroom setting.  Dr. Cheryl Maloney, Superintendent, provided a PowerPoint presentation on Global Education to the faculty of the Weston Public Schools during its Professional Development Day on March 23, 2009.
