As the state continues to move forward with implementation of Common Core standards, Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor announced a three day development session for nearly 100 teachers.  Several teachers from the Greater Danbury area will be participating in "Teach Fest Connecticut" next weekend.

 

The educators participating in the conference will then bring the concepts back to their school districts and others to counsel their fellow teachers. Pryor says the ‘Connecticut Dream Team’ will later serve as teacher leaders at a larger event this summer.
