How do we support high-quality early learning experiences?​

How you teach is just as important as what you teach. Advancing Effective Interactions and Instruction (AEII) helps Virginia’s school leaders provide data-driven professional development — equipping teachers with knowledge and skills they need to prepare each child for a great start in school.
