Warren Instructional Network Professional Development is committed to offering high quality consulting services for all educators. It is our goal to maximize each professional learning opportunity with teachers and help them make a positive impact with students in the classroom.
Over the past four years, Warren Instructional Network (WIN) has provided many professional learning opportunities for Dallas ISD literacy coaches, teachers, and administrators to support the district’s literacy goals and objectives. As the district has placed more of an emphasis on topics related to a balanced-literacy classroom (e.g.,whole group, small group, and individual instruction), WIN has worked to find experts in the field in those areas.
