Elementary Staff Professional Development
Secondary Staff Professional Development

What is the purpose?

Designed to help your staff build readiness to deliver (or continue to deliver) CharacterStrong curricula at the Elementary, Middle, or High School Level.

How will it work?

  • 2-hour PD (Virtual Presenter): The session will be delivered via live, virtual format to 1 or multiple schools. We recommend bringing your full staff into a space where the CharacterStrong Trainer can be projected on a big screen with quality sound so that folks can respond, in person, to the prompts, reflections, and activities together. If this is not possible, individual educators can log in if necessary from separate spaces.

  • 3-Hour PD (In Person Presenter): The session will be delivered by a presenter in person in your building for elementary or secondary staff. We recommend bringing your full staff into a space where they will have the ability to sit, take notes, and move around to engage in our activities.
  • What is included?

    An all-access pass for your full staff to the 2-hour virtual or 3-hour in person session and a year’s worth of practical follow-up resources for building leaders to support ongoing staff readiness throughout the year. This includes: An immediate 15-60 minute meeting template to get staff onboarded into the curriculum site and 4 (1 for each quarter of the year) follow up resources that can be customized for 5 to 60 minutes worth of staff meeting activities, video reminders, slide templates, email scripts, and more.

    Be Inspired and Prepared

    "CharacterStrong puts 'first things first' - the whole child. The training is inspiring and practical."

    -Susan S.,
    Principal OR

    "In 16 years, this training has stood out as being so important to our development as professionals and as a school. The passion and knowledge passed on is unparalleled."

    Randall B.,
    Assistant Principal

    "I am a PD skeptic. I am just like many other educators where I find myself distracted with grading and planning during a PD. CharacterStrong held my attention the entire time and gave me tools I am going to use tomorrow, the next day, and many more after that. I would take this PD again in a heartbeat."

    Educator
