As most educators know, professional development is critical and networking with your peers is invaluable when it comes to personal and professional growth. Serving on an MSA team provides you with opportunities for that and much more.
Due to the scope of our MSA membership, you will have the opportunity to visit a wide range of schools where you will be exposed to diverse teaching and learning methodologies and be given the opportunity to observe “Best Practices” in action. As you work with professional colleagues you will have the opportunity to share and highlight your own specialized talents with other educators forming the basis for new friendships and networks. Repeated service often leads to opportunities for professional leadership, as well.
Visiting team experience is invaluable to those who will be involved in preparing their own school for accreditation providing the participant with a depth of understanding he can share with his own school to facilitate success.
In today’s economy professional development has become a challenge as the need remains high and budgets shrink. It is more important than ever that professional development be of high quality and great utility. MSA team service provides professional development at no cost to the team member. While professional development credits are issued for team service, our team members report the added benefit of returning to their own schools with new ideas ready for immediate implementation.
