AANNH Professional Development Survey

The Arts Alliance and our partners around the state offer arts-based professional development programs throughout the year. We are inviting educators throughout our region as well as registrants from previous programs to fill out this survey to help us complete our planning for the 2017-18 school year. We know how busy you are and sincerely thank you for taking the time to respond!

We're sending the survey to school principals, arts educators, classroom and SPED teachers and some school staff. Please feel free to forward the survey; we hope to hear from at least one person at each school, but the more the better!  Also, please email us or call us any time with suggestions, ideas or questions - you can reach us at programs@aannh.org  or call us at 603-323-7302. We're always happy to customize professional development programs as well as artist visits and residencies and cultural opportunities of all kinds for your school.
