Don’t Just Say It, Do It…Bring Creativity In

14 Sep

Our schools and classrooms need creativity. ¬†It’s not optional. ¬†We all know it.

This year, bring creativity into your district by hosting a new kind of professional development.  This year, bring in some inspiration from real teachers who understand your time constraints, know your limited resources and acknowledge the responsibility you have to curriculum standards.  Our fun, hands-on workshop programs include projects, lesson plans and resources that will allow you to implement  your new ideas as soon as you get back to your classroom.  Here are just a few of the unique sessions we have designed:

  • The Zen Classroom: Fostering Focus and Feeling Free
  • The Writing Classroom: Writing With Soul
  • Back To The Wild: Nature Journaling and Other Wild Things
  • Poetry Rocks: Lyrical Writing In Motion
We think there’s a way to remain creative at any age. ¬†We look forward to hearing from you and can’t wait to share our ideas!
