Our professional development opportunities are designed to support powerful learning experiences that connect to students’ lives and communities. In this time of increasing awareness and activism, we are joining with teachers in working to address the vast racial, economic, and environmental disparities in our communities and classrooms.
Through our courses, workshops, and focused 1:1 supports (including individualized planning sessions), we hope that you’ll join us in creating community, sharing resources, and building a way forward together within the unpredictable landscape of remote teaching and learning, collective anti-racist action, and a growing commitment to addressing climate change through an intersectional lens.

85% of teachers report they are more likely to use the schoolyard as a classroom two months after participating in our series.
73% of teachers report a lasting impact on their teaching, such as increasing inquiry-based learning and making connections to the community and larger systems.
