Professional Development Training for Educators

Black Rock Retreat wants to support our area teachers and other non-formal educators by offering professional trainings. Trainings take place in our Nature Center which is nestled in the woods of Black Rock and contains over a dozen live animals. Information on any upcoming training is listed below.

Quality Educator Relations Seminar

This one‐day program on educator relations is designed to help achieve quality in providing professional services through more effective communication using the Process Communication Model (PCM). Educators will learn how to target communication to satisfy the student’s motivational needs as well as those of their colleagues and administrators and the student’s parents. They will be given tools to develop an individualized teaching style that will enable them to connect quickly with and motivate their students. They also will be given strategies to enable them to communicate effectively with disgruntled students and parents. There are no prerequisites. Each person receives a Quality Educator Relations Profile© incorporated into the manual.
