Professional Development

WhyMaker offers completely customized and curated professional development to meet the needs of your educators.

What We Do

We work with school leaders to determine an action plan that supports teachers in meaningful and engaging professional growth.

The WhyMaker Way PD sessions for educators always allow for their voices and knowledge to be honored and respected, while pushing them to move their instructional practices to the next level.

Below are some of the ways we like to structure our PD based on the needs of the school and educators.

What to Expect

  1. Align: We meet to learn more about you and understand your specific needs and goals.
  2. Plan: We assemble your team of educational experts with the experience to achieve your goals.
  3. Design: We use our advanced tools and practices to design your personalized solution, ensuring continued alignment along the way.
  4. Empower: We empower educators through your personalized solution, sharing resources, building relationships, and adjusting support where necessary.
