Teacher Professional Development

It's tough for you to participate in professional development and still be in the classroom with your students. You have a lot to do and so little time to get it all done. Click, Learn, and Teach, a series of online professional development programs from the Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta and St. Louis, is designed to make it easier!

Teachers in certain states can earn one hour of CPDU credit by working with their students to complete an online course in one of more than a dozen topics spanning concepts in economics and personal finance. There is no fee.

Are you looking for more? We have two additional professional development options: Graduate Credit and Federal Reserve Bank Certification. If you have an interest in any of our three professional development options, click here or contact Barb Flowers.
