PD Spotlight: Creating Change


We know living in a perpetual cycle of triage is unsustainable. We know we need to find a way to support each other and revise our rhythm to match the world we live and teach in today. How can we adjust our approach, enabling us to focus on creating change in our classrooms, schools, and communities?

Brooklyn-based educator and author Cornelius Minor says, "We know we must develop tools to face it all and make specific and intentional changes to ensure our own survival. And beyond that, we must redefine what it means to thrive. So how do we operate in the face of incessant challenge?"

With all of this in mind, look through the curated collection of professional learning options below. These were intentionally developed and designed to meet this moment and are presented by Heinemann authors, education practitioners, and researchers.
