Ongoing Support for Teachers and Leaders
The Professional Education team works with teachers and leaders to continuously improve their craft throughout their careers. Through virtual workshops, fellowship programs, and targeted support, we help all educators strengthen student academic success, equity, and wellness.
Our offerings are practice-based and equity-centered, led by experienced practitioners and designed to build community among a diverse set of peers.
Relay Professional Education partners with schools, systems (independent, district and charter), peer organizations, and states to help bring their vision for their learning community to life. Our goal is to see measurable improvements in participants’ effectiveness, satisfaction, and tenure in their schools, and a positive impact on all students’ academic growth and school experience.
The Relay Experience
We offer virtual workshops, fellowship programs (with virtual and in person options), and tailored coaching, all with an approach that is:
Actionable and practice-based: Educators learn and practice skills they can apply tomorrow.
Evidence-based and data-informed: We share strategies drawn from our faculty’s deep experience, and focus on how to use data to continuously improve.
Equity-centered and culturally-responsive: Educators will develop their ability to create inclusive and affirming learning spaces.
Supportive and community-oriented: Our faculty intentionally create inclusive and affirming adult learning spaces, where participants are encouraged to create community and bring their full selves.
