Professional Learning for Leaders and Teachers


CRECE provides professional development for teachers and leaders throughout the region. We facilitate opportunities for learning and growth to actualize thoughtful, responsive, joyful, justice-focused education. These well-attended events create a forum for educational leaders, including faculty, students, alumni, and local educators to share their expertise, improve their skills, and expand their knowledge.
