Professional Development Services, Workshops and Keynotes
Teacher leadership doesn’t just happen. It needs to be nurtured and thoughtfully developed. Our approach is to work with a staff, department, organization or group of teachers with a common goal, building on their strengths and passions to develop their personal capacity to meet the challenges they face.
We do not do “one-size-fits-all” trainings. While we will share models and protocols that will spur your team to focus on their goals and improving instruction for your students, workshops will be custom-tailored for each group.

We believe in connecting with classroom teachers in advance of any workshop, presentation or launch of a virtual community. We will come to your location, preferably a day in advance of a scheduled presentation, at our own expense, to meet with teachers to connect with them, building on their expertise for our work together.
Our process begins with conversation. Let us know what your goals are and where you want to go with our assistance, and we will work with you to come up with a plan to develop teacher leadership from the ground up.
Teachers Lead: Workshops and Keynotes
The Teacher as Change Agent
A workshop designed to explore participants' ideas and assumptions about teacher leadership in their unique context--and challenge them to get past common barriers, moving toward personal agency in leading change. Teachers will think about the intersection of their personal leadership beliefs and styles with the most critical changes needed in their workplace, determining points of influence and leverage. Opportunity to work collaboratively in teams on identified problems--or individually to construct an action plan, with networked, follow-up conversation.
National Board Workshops
We offer a wide range of workshops and ongoing services around the National Board process, from short, half-day introduction to the tools and purposes of National Board Certification for prospective candidates-- to four-day, immersive "Jumpstart" seminars for those who are active candidates beginning their work. Workshops are also offered for NBCTs and others who are supporting candidates, and school districts wishing to use Take One! as a professional development tool.
