Professional Learning for Math

Customized Math Professional Learning

Set your teachers up for success as they begin (or continue!) their work with Fishtank Math. 

Our PL design focuses on immersive, experiential learning that translates directly into the way teachers will plan and prepare with Fishtank Math. 

We offer a Launch series, which provides onboarding support for teachers who are new to the curriculum, as well as Choice sessions that can be added during onboarding or later in the school year to deepen teachers' knowledge and practice. 

All Fishtank Professional Learning is facilitated by Fishtank curriculum and PL specialists, and delivered virtually via Zoom.

I found it so helpful to learn more about the Guiding Principles behind Fishtank Math. Learning to navigate the resources and videos was also incredibly valuable.
