Dr. Katherine Kasten
It is widely recognized in the field of education that a four year teacher education program is but a minimum prerequisite for entry into the teaching profession. Teachers need to continue to develop professionally throughout their teaching careers. Staff development activities are seen as a vital means of ensuring that practicing educators are exposed to new techniques, programs, and other innovations, and are given assistance with classroom-related and subject-related areas of concern (Pansegrau, 1984).
