Professional Development



As educators, we are constantly striving to learn new skills and strategies that will improve student achievement. Green Hills AEA programs are coordinated to enhance the professional, personal, and organizational staff development needs of LEA and AEA staff. These include both license renewal and graduate credit courses; Paraeducator Certification; Substitute Authorization Certification; and informational workshops.  Educators from anywhere in Iowa are welcome to join in the quality learning opportunities offered at Green Hills AEA.
