Customized Professional Development

Small mathematics professional development company with a big passion to improve schools all over the world.


What kind of customization can be done?

There is no one-size fits all mentality within our company. We have watched other companies enter districts with a cookie cutter offering that was used at the neighboring district down the road. When things are working well in one district, it doesn't necessarily mean that you should follow the same exact path. Imitation of professional development plans from other districts helps the larger companies keep their consultants on script. Everything they do is very 'canned' and the consultants are told to not deviate from the planned lessons that they model.

We tend to cater to smaller districts because relationship building needs to happen with only a few individuals. The staff that we use tends to stay within the district for the duration of the contract. Flexibility and spontanaity are regular components of our professional development. The consultants are told ';o teach a teacher you need to be a teacher'. Theory only goes so far when dealing with the real-life classroom situations.
