No worries! We've got you covered!  

Imagine having an expert Project GLAD® consultant available to coach your teachers on their timeline for the entire year - whether they're teaching from home or in the classroom. Yep. It's that's good!

What People Are Saying...

Elizabeth Audio

8th grade teacher, education researcher

"I highly recommend The Path to Proficiency (P2P). As an education researcher, I appreciate that P2P uses everything we know about good professional development: it is ongoing, job-embedded, and extremely high-quality. As a middle school teacher, I love that it gives me concrete steps for implementing the strategies with videos that are just the right length and to the point. Thank you, Jody and Sara, for sharing your expertise."

What people are saying about their VIRTUAL Research and Theory Experience.

"The training was great! I did this with Jody and Sara 2 years ago during my student teaching and this was a great refresher on so many different strategies.

I will say, I much prefer the 4 half days of instruction to the 2 full days. It was so much easier to process the information in smaller chunks and gave me time to think about how I would like to implement the strategies learned."
