Professional Development

The Alabama Educational Theatre Association is committed to providing valuable professional development for Alabama Educators. 

We offer two opportunities for Professional Development

1. 2 PD days offered in conjunction with the Alabama Conference of Theatre. We strive to have one per semester. 

2. Over 20 workshops opportunities for Alabama Educators at our annual Alabama Thespian Festival. 

Upcoming Professional Development

March 13 and 14 at Vestavia Hills High School. We were unable to offer PD days in the fall so we are offering 8 hours of PD in the Spring. We will have 2 days of workshops for teachers. Our State Thespian Officers will also be offering leadership workshops  on March 14th for your students. These events are not in conjunction with each other. You don’t have to attend if your students want to do the leadership workshop and your students don’t have to attend if you want to do the PD. However, it is a great time for you both to learn something new. We will announce our workshop presenters in December for the teacher PD. We will send out a sign up sheet in December as well. This year we are offering our PD days for no cost due to a grant that we received. However, we still need you to fill out the sign up sheet so that we know how many to expect and can help the presenters plan accordingly.
