Sustainable, scalable learning
Our professional learning is tailored to meet teachers where they are on the learning continuum, allowing educators at every level to develop their skills over time.

Proven to boost educator effectiveness
Our suite of professional learning helps teachers develop the skills and confidence to implement standards-aligned instruction, ensure curricular coherence within and across grade levels, facilitate meaningful mathematics discussions, and implement instructional routines that engage students and improve their learning.
“We learned about the curriculum by doing math and engaging in rich discussions. Our IM Certified™ Facilitator modeled the use of mathematical language routines and instructional routines, which helped us deepen our understanding of both the content and the curriculum. Not only did this training engage all our teachers, but also, we can't wait to see the impact the curriculum is going to have with our students.”
