What are teachers saying about working with us?

"I'm glad that we have a welcoming environment where we can ask questions, provide support, and collaborate on ideas with other educators.

"You are both incredibly amazing for all you do! Thank you for setting up this much needed platform!" 

"I love the small group setting so you always feel important and valued."

Pssst... we already asked your principal about this!

Well, almost.  We wrote the template for you to request professional development funds to cover the cost of your membership.  Just access the template below, copy and paste and send it off!  We know you're busy, but we also know that so many teachers pay out of pocket rather than accessing their school's professional learning funds. Let us make it easy for you to get PD funding with this template.
