Professional Learning and Consulting
MLP offers customized professional development for school districts all over the country. The advantage of this work is that we come to your district to work with you in designing professional learning that meets your needs. We also work with school officials to help design longterm sustainability plans for ongoing support of teachers. Each school/district is different and we want to make sure the learning experiences are the right fit for your teachers. If this is something you would like to explore for your district, give us a call and we will be happy to talk with you about how we can work with your teachers, teacher-leaders, coaches, and support staff.
Contact Mike Flynn at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how we can support you and your district’s professional learning needs.
