106 7
Professional Development refers to any ongoing training that a teacher receives to improve in areas of deficiency, to gain new knowledge or insight in a particular area, or to be refreshed in a particular area as needed. Each state has varying requirements for professional development. Most states require a particular number of professional development hours over the course of a year or a period of several years.

Some specific professional development is mandatory on yearly basis, but the bulk of professional development opportunities are optional. These optional professional development opportunities are often specific to grade level, subject area, etc. Effective teachers seek professional development opportunities that are applicable to them and will help improve the quality of education they will provide to their students.
