HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - William Carey University’s School of Education has gotten an overwhelming response from K-12 teachers in the Pine Belt who are interested in attending a professional development workshop this summer.

The Hattiesburg American reports (https://hatne.ws/1Cuh2Kd ) the four-week June workshop is being funded with a $90,000 Title II grant the School of Education received from the Board of Trustees of the state Institutions of Higher Learning. Only 12 such grants were awarded in Mississippi this year.

Ben Burnett, the school’s dean, says the teachers would be chosen partially on a first-come, first-served basis.

Liesa Weaver, chairwoman of the educational leadership department, said the teachers would learn additional instructional techniques, how to collaborate with other teachers and how to help their students with end-of-the-year standardized tests.
