The vision of the Teacher Development Department is to ensure that every classroom has a highly effective teacher who demonstrates the ability and desire to educate students at a high level. Fresno Unified is committed to building a teaching workforce that reflects the values, linguistic skills, and cultural diversity of the community of students it serves in order to close the achievement gap.
Teacher Development will provide a continuum of support for aspiring, new, and existing teachers to attract and retain the best in education. We will foster a culture of continuous improvement by providing accessible research-based professional learning for all teachers to fulfill Fresno Unified’s educational mission of building the capacity of teachers to prepare college and career ready graduates.
