Beverly Gilbert is the Director of Professional Development at SIATech.
Beverly has created and implemented professional development programs for instructors, facilitators and administrators in education for the past nine years. She developed SIATech’s Induction Program which awards California General Education and Education Specialist Clear Credentials each year. Virtual instruction pedagogical practices have been infused in all professional development and credentialing programs for existing and new instructors under her guidance.
Inquiry Research, teachers researching and documenting pedagogical strategies, is a key element of the professional development programs she designs. Attracting, developing and retaining quality instructors for all methods of instructional delivery is the focus of SIATech’s professional development department. Beverly delivers professional development virtually, as well as face-to-face, and provides virtual experiential opportunities for instructors.
Beverly is involved in charter development, accreditation, and works closely with instructional model designing as well as curriculum development. Previously, Beverly taught high school mathematics, served as a mentor teacher, taught university-level courses in teacher education, and is a previous actuary.
Beverly will be part of the panel, "Preparing Great Teachers for At-Promise Students."
