ESC Region 20 and University of Phoenix
Invest in yourself your influence extends beyond the classroom
Nothing is more important to you than your students' achievement. But between planning lessons, grading papers and being involved in extracurricular activities at your school, you may find it difficult to stay on top of the latest trends in teaching or to pursue a leadership role. That's why ESC Region 20 has teamed up with University of Phoenix, to offer access to degree, professional development programs and test-preparation.
Establishing leaders from within
You know your students better than anyone else does. Our school, the students we serve and the district benefit when we provide you with educational opportunities that enhance your classroom instruction and give you the tools you need to pursue a leadership role. And when students are well-educated, our nation is more globally competitive.
