Help your colleagues increase their impact.

We have a vision, and we hope you have it too. We see a school where every student has the benefit of having a highly effective teacher. But, a vision without action is only a dream. So, how are we going to transform this vision into reality? The answer to that is simple. You.

When you attend one of our Learning-Focused Training of Trainers Institutes, you will learn how to lead teachers in becoming the best possible educator they can be… aka, a Super Teacher!

What does that mean, “Super Teacher?” A highly effective teacher is defined as one who uses the most impactful research-based learning strategies and evidence-based practices during their lesson instruction at least 75% of the time. Wow! If you do not have a plan for how to achieve that, then yes, becoming highly effective may seem as likely as becoming a superhero! The good news… we have the plan!

Join us to learn how to help shift your instruction, your school, and your district into one that has turned vision into reality. Together, we will help teachers grow into the highly effective “Super Teacher” that every student deserves!
