Professional Development
The Knox County Schools Professional Development is located on the lower floor of the Sarah Simpson Professional Development Technology Center. This is the home of TeacherU. TeacherU is the main vehicle through which KCS employees can manage their professional development. Employees will:
  • Register for workshops, courses, and conferences on TeacherU.
  • Request transfer credit for sessions not listed on TeacherU.
  • Develop your own professional growth plan and focus your development activities on that plan.
  • View your record (transcript) of professional development activities.
  • Complete evaluations of completed activities.
  • See the schedule of activities for which you are registered.
TeacherU can be utilized for school-based as well as system-wide activities. If you want to lead an inservice session, you will be able to go through your school administrator, who will both approve and post the session on TeacherU.


Office of Behavioral Liaisons
The office of behavioral liaisons is located on the first floor at the SSPDTC.
