Professional Learning

Research states that professional learning is essential to effective classroom implementation. According to Simon, Johnson, and Quick et al. (2009), change is not a solitary event: it is a process that occurs over time. Therefore, we are committed to providing a professional plan that provides teachers with opportunities for learning over an extended period of time.


Product-Specific Training


We offer a blended-learning approach that allows us to fulfill your professional needs while keeping mandatory meeting times to a minimum. Our plan offers flexibility for both a district and its teachers. Blended learning combines the best of face-to-face interaction with the flexibility of online instruction. Each of the plans below combines a mixture of face-to-face, webinars, and online courses.
