“The decision to expand our offerings to include customizable teacher staff development programs was easy,” explains Anne Swigard, President of Educational Training Specialists, LLC. “Approximately one-third of the requests we receive from schools or districts are for teacher workshops not included in our professional development course listings.”

In addition to information and research on the topic, elements of the following workshops were used:
