Overview

We create professional development materials that avoid prescriptive solutions.

We tailor materials for our webinars, workshops, and keynote presentations to meet the specific interests of school, afterschool, library, and early education leaders.

Educators gain skills and competencies to work with families through problem solving, empathy, and reflection. Our materials are available through our website, professional journals, and book publishers.
