When educators lead with passion, knowledge, and thoughtful instruction, students learn!
When educators lead with passion, knowledge, and thoughtful instruction, students learn!


No matter a student’s grade level, location, or situation, students who are led by empowered passionate educators will mirror their teachers with the same passion for learning, depth of knowledge, and thoughtfulness.

That’s why TKL is committed to providing educators with the tools to help all students succeed.

At TKL, we believe that the best way to improve as an educator is to engage in job-embedded learning that connects theory to practice. That’s why we’ve designed our courses to help you transfer learning within your own classroom and school community. Through making observations, implementing new strategies, reflecting on your practice, and engaging in structured inquiry and reflection, you’ll be able to elevate your teaching practice to new heights.

Our mission is to ensure that teachers receive high-quality professional development that sparks a passion for teaching and internalizes a process for reflective instructional review.

At Teach & Kids Learn, we know that transformation requires inspiration, persistence, and patience. (just ask our butterfly). 

We believe:

  • Teachers hold the power to transform student learning.
  • Professional learning empowers teachers with the knowledge they need to transform their practice.

Transformative learning occurs over time and in predictable stages. No matter where you enter into this transformative process, your TKL team and learning community are here to support you!
