Does Sharon Wells Mathematics offer staff development options and programs?


The quality of the program is enhanced by our commitment to providing support to the teachers through engaging and intentional Professional Development Workshops. We offer several different staff development options for those districts and campuses that purchase the program. Our training programs range from Fundamental Core Full Day Training (5 1/2 hours) where teachers are able to attend a workshop each 6 weeks and learn the daily classroom practices and non-negotiables for implementing the program in a way that engages the students and promotes success. Teachers are introduced to a variety of best practice strategies for implementing the program with consistency and fidelity. School Districts and campuses that have used the program and have been previously trained with Fundamental Full Day are offered our alternative Fundamental Review Maintenance Program. This is a shorter refresher (2 1/2 hours) workshop each six weeks, where teachers are given an opportunity to fine tune their approach to implementing the program by reviewing the fundamentals and focal points of each of our 4 components. Let us know how we can tailor a Staff Development Plan that meets your campus/district and fiscal needs? For pricing information, please go to our Contact Page.
