Science Professional Developments

We all dread the boring professional developments that serve no purpose and are not engaging! Well, not only do I provide engaging and impactful professional development workshops, but I also decided to provide some additional options for professional development on the go.

Teaching Tolerance

Teaching Tolerance provides professional developments for educators in the following areas, school climate, instruction, classroom culture, family and community engagement, teaching leadership, and teaching tolerance workshops. This company provides online webinars, learning modules, and face to face workshops in selected cities. Some of the resources are free, while others may cost such as face to face workshops.

These sessions cost anywhere from $35-$125. The aquarium also offers some training that has a stipend, take away resources, and other great materials attached to it.

Greetings: My name is Andrea S. Pickens; I have several years of experience in education and youth development all of which include teaching and leading youth in under-resourced and economically disadvantaged communities. I believe that it is critical to the academic and over success of our youth to have proper academic and social-emotional support. This support is often found in schools and after-school programs that intervene by providing tutoring/enrichment services and are equipped with effective teachers and leaders. My belief is that each child can learn, but not all children learn the same; diversity and equity is crucial to youth development. It is my mission as an educator, entrepreneur, and servant-leader to equip and empower others in youth development and education to reach our youth beyond the secondary classroom. Yours in Education, Andrea S. Pickens, M.Ed
