If your school district has cut
its budget by eliminating travel to out-of-district PD, or if you want a group
or your entire staff to experience our workshops first hand, we can come to you!
Our professional development
is designed as a model of the 21st century classroom - not "sit and get" as
shown below -
But interactive - based upon the
Pyramid which illustrates that the highest level of learning occurs when the
learners "teach each other and make immediate use of their learning" . . .

creative ideas for curriculum!
