Professional Growth & Development

At King, we strongly believe that a top quality Professional Growth and Development (PG&D) program is a cornerstone of our success. Faculty members at King are talented, committed, knowledgeable, energetic, and passionate about their work. It is in this spirit that King has developed a comprehensive, multi-dimensional, and systematic approach to PG&D.

The PG&D program enables Faculty to stay up to date on new research, attend top conferences and workshops, and hone their practices as teachers. Importantly, our teachers bring all that they learn back to King by incorporating the new knowledge into their classroom lessons, sharing best practices with their colleagues, and even creating whole new course options based on their PG&D experiences.

Every Faculty member attends at least two PG&D PROGRAMS per year, in addition to ongoing training year round.
