Coding PD

Professional Development Sessions will be held to help MESA teachers with resources through the school year.  Instead of in person singular training, we will be utilizing a virtual module training method to support our advisors (teachers) in their teaching practices, assistance with project-based learning, our yearly theme of “Celebrating Invention”, and adapting their classroom and MESA program to the current educational landscape. Each module will be up to a full day of training, will be recorded for future viewing, will provide opportunities for followup assistance, and will provide resources for continued learning. Future training events may be open to all teachers at NM MESA schools (TBD).

  • All NM MESA Teachers are Invited to Attend.
  • All sessions will be held virtually via zoom.  “Live” attendance is considered participation in real time.
