Everyone has a story about a teacher who impacted their life in some immeasurable way.
Teachers — educators — are among society’s greatest assets.
But being an educator is hard — and, in the face of global pandemic, that job isn’t getting any easier.
Our educators want and need better resources to help them work through the litany of challenges and opportunities students face, from social-emotional learning to equity to accountability to stronger family engagement.
The old sit-and-get approaches of the past never were much good — and certainly won’t work now.
We built RocketPD because school leaders told us they wanted more from their professional learning experiences.
At RocketPD, we focus on doing three things really well.
- Connecting our school partners to the top thought leaders
- Delivering professional learning on the topics that matter
- Creating experiences focused on outcomes
Unlike traditional professional learning, which stops when the session ends, each of our programs is designed to take your team on a deep, multi-phased exploration of their topic of interest.
We vet each of our thought leaders and design their programs to ensure the value they provide quickly moves from theory to practice within your organization.
That’s because all of programs are:
- Learning forward and/or standards-aligned
- Practical and applicable
- Sustainable over time
- Job embedded (with opportunities for collaboration)
And the best part?
If you’re a PD coordinator or curriculum director, all of our resources are available in one place and customizable to the needs of your schools. No more fruitless Google searches or worries over quality or consistency of programming. We offer everything from multi-district cohort experiences, to full and half-day sessions built specifically for your team.
If you’re looking for ways to better engage your teachers and staff this year, and you’re tired of the same old, boring no-good PD experience, we hope you’ll stick around and explore our growing universe of professional learning.
