Step in with confidence!

Do you need more tools for your teaching toolbox?

No shame! Teaching is hard and we all need new ideas for teaching engaging lessons. There is a lot to think about: pacing, engagement, asking questions, leading discussions, warm-ups, exit tickets, active participation, and more!

But guess what? It’s the perfect time to fill your toolbox.

It is likely that you have never been really trained what good instruction looks like and how to do it. It takes trained teachers a long time, years in fact, to figure this stuff out.

The problem is not you it’s the lack of training that you received. This course will give you the confidence you need to teach like a pro.
