Lifelong Learning

Relay Teacher Professional Education provides a space for all teachers to grow. From novices to veterans, every teacher faces new challenges every year, whether it’s accelerating learning, creating inclusive classrooms, navigating online learning or using data to inform instruction. Our approach ensures teachers leave their workshop or fellowship experience with the tools they need to make a difference for all students, tomorrow.

The Hollyhock Humanities Fellowship

The Hollyhock Humanities Fellowship is a paid, year-long experience for New York City-based humanities teachers to develop their content knowledge, hone their skills and learn new equity-centered approaches to their subject.

Workshops are appropriate for all grade levels and capped at 50 participants. Our team works closely with our partners to identify the right experiences to meet their staff’s needs, delivered flexibly to fit their unique schedule.

Curated Series

Each series focuses on a set of core teaching skills, intentionally building on concepts for maximum teacher impact.

Individual Workshops

Alternatively or in addition, partners may select individual workshops from the catalog. Most workshops can also be found in a series.
