Teachers are lifelong learners and as a member of the Network you will have the opportunity to learn alongside other NBCTs in professional learning opportunities designed especially for you. More importantly, you will have a voice in shaping that learning. The Arizona NBCT Network hosts an annual convening designed specifically for Arizona’s NBCTs.
