Professional Development Reimagined

We design our workshops with flexibility and convenience in mind because we believe educators should be able to choose what they learn, who they learn from, and how they learn.

Our Philosophy

Enjoy modern, convenient approaches to learning.

You should never have to choose between time in your classroom and your own professional development. Schedule continued education around your life—not the other way around.

Learn from people you know and respect.

Take workshops with instructors whose work you admire. Ask questions, get personalized replies, and carry their resources into your classroom.

“I am blessed to be born in the era of Grassroots Workshops. I have already taken two workshops and look forward to taking more.”

Why Grassroots Workshops?

As an educator since 2003, I created Grassroots Workshops to give teachers control over their own professional development. I didn’t like seeing teachers everywhere feel guilty for not wanting to spend hours preparing for a substitute just to attend another one-size-fits-all training that seemed like a waste of time.

Now you can efficiently learn from the educators you choose. Because our workshops are interactive, we encourage you to ask questions. Your instructors will reply, and we hope they’ll provide you with a better sense of where you want to go – and the confidence to get there.

If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you want to share, please let me know at [email protected].
