Teacher Professional Development

Cultivate skills and strategies to incorporate the performing arts into lesson planning and teaching practices.

New Victory is an approved New York State Education Department Sponsor of Continuing Teacher & Leader Education (CTLE).

New Victory believes the performing arts are an invaluable resource in the classroom and provides professional development opportunities for educators working with Grades Pre-K – 12.

New Victory Education provides multiple opportunities for educators to grow professionally by exploring myriad art forms, including puppetry, circus, dance and theater. Participants gain practical strategies for performing art form-based teaching and learning through art making, skills building, reflection and discussion.

The room was full of moments of impact! It was great to be in the company and energy of theater artists who care about the quality of young people’s learning.
