Getting to Know Your Learners

What is a curated workshop series?

A set of workshops deliberately designed and sequenced to build skills in one topic, from the fundamentals to advanced techniques. Through community, discussion, and multiple opportunities to practice, teachers hone new strategies they can use right away.

Getting to Know Your Learners


This series delves into the art of building trust and fostering open communication with students to cater to their social, emotional, and academic needs. It provides insights on how to support students in their unique learning journeys to ensure their academic success. Topics covered include the establishment of trusting relationships with students and the adaptation of learning environments to meet individual learning needs. By the conclusion of this series, educators will be well-prepared with the knowledge and skills to cultivate affirming partnerships with their students.

Hearing from Our Partners

It was so refreshing to attend a professional development session that modeled best practices! It's so much easier to internalize and visualize what it can look like when you get to see it first.

Lindsay Miller, Special Education Instructional Coach, Bullitt County Public Schools

Tangible strategies and resources, with opportunities for practice in a safe space. Thank you!

Rosa Joo, Green Dot Public Schools, Teacher Effectiveness Specialist

Our facilitator was very inclusive, mindful of our time, and also did a great job of teaching adults. (Not always easy to do)

Katie Stuhmer, Teacher Harding University High, Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools

This was the best facilitated online session I have attended. It was so smoothly, calmly, and sensitively led. What a great model for our teachers and for myself as a leader. I am blown away by how engaging, organized, and meaningful this session was.
