Bosque's Sofia Center Continues to Develop Professionals

Faculty and staff were immersed in an engaging day of sharing and learning on Monday for the first professional development day of the new year and the second of the school year. Professional development, designed and led by the school's Sofia Center, is a cornerstone of Bosque—providing opportunities for teachers and leaders to grow, learn, stay current with best practices, and try new things. The session opened with an interactive and thoughtful reading/writing workshop with Albuquerque Poet Laureate, Michelle Otero, and continued with breakout sessions featuring experts who spoke on important and relevant topics impacting the classroom, including community-based education, implicit bias/entitlement, white fragility and understanding its impact, and growing capacity to support LGBTQ+ students.

The Sofia Center for Professional Development designs and leads vibrant and inspirational professional development programs for Bosque faculty and staff, as well as for educators from across the community and beyond.  Since opening its doors in 2013, the Sofia Center has welcomed and collaborated with educators from over 200 schools and organizations.
