About this trip

During the visit, you will visit a preschool/daycare and receive formal professional development at the Finnish National Agency for Education for three days from Petteri Elo. 

Since Finnish schools are on the same schedule as American schools, you will get to meet Finnish teachers at the PD sessions and will have time to talk and ask about their teaching practices, methods, or the challenges they face during their daily work.
