Professional Development for
Teachers & Education Leaders
Our goal is to help educators develop and apply the knowledge and skills necessary to ensure that their students learn to higher levels.
For over 20 years, our programs have been a trusted source of specialized professional learning services for educators of all types – including teachers, principals, teacher leaders, related specialists, paraprofessionals, and parents. Our professional learning is designed to help close the opportunity gap in education and is aligned with the National Education Association’s Learning Forward’s Standards for Staff Development.
Through our programs, we advance teacher effectiveness by providing educators with professional learning that is specific and relevant to students’ and teachers’ needs.
Our programs use varied formats and media, focusing on the teaching and learning of specific content, building strong working relationships among staff to solve student learning issues. Our programs are entirely customizable and we work with individual educators, small groups of educators, entire school faculties, and with district-wide capacity-building initiatives.
