The goal of the PS 9 Peer Collaboration Initiative is to build a community of collaboration through peer support. In Spring 2015, 22 teachers worked together to recognize and utilize strong pedagogy in the building, focused on a desire to learn from colleagues. Funding will sustain this work through which lead teachers/point-persons provide support, observation opportunities and PD sessions to model and improve best practices. The Prize will allow the school to train point-persons.
