The school year is drawing to an end. And, if you’re like me, you might have postponed your professional development trainings. It’s hard to prioritize your own growth when you’re focused on supporting the development of the children in your program. 

But, it’s important to prioritize yourself as well! At Teachstone, we believe in the importance of continuous growth. In fact, in the CLASS® Implementation Guide, we even advise program leaders that: “To adopt new practices, educators need to understand and believe in them, but that’s not enough. For these practices to become routine, it requires deliberate effort over time.” 

That’s why we're excited to host a new week-long Educator Workshop Series coming May 20-24, 2024. Designed to fit into your busy schedule, our Educator Workshops deliver practical, actionable strategies in convenient 45-minute sessions. 

Who Should Attend?

Whether you work with infants, toddlers, or pre-K students, this series has something for everyone. The sessions are specially designed for:

  • Educators seeking to enhance their teaching toolkit
  • Coaches looking to support the educators they work with
  • Any school leaders interested in improving classroom interactions
