As the list of state-mandated Professional Development continues to grow, we wanted to find a really engaging way to present the information we had seen so many times. After meeting with Dr. Scherz and his team, we were intrigued not only by these trainings but also by the potential to implement something that would be really beneficial for our staff. Our teachers have access to so many resources that support their wellness, and through our partnership were able to take part in live scavenger hunts, book studies, and so much more. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Teacher Coach!
