Heinemann’s Philosophy and Company Mission Statement

Heinemann is a publisher of professional resources and a provider of educational services for teachers, kindergarten through college. We strive to give voice to those who share our respect for the professionalism and compassion of teachers and who support teachers’ efforts to help children become literate, empathetic, knowledgeable citizens. Our authors are exemplary educators eager to support the practice of other teachers through books, videos, workshops, online courses, and most recently through explicit teaching materials. Our commitment to our work and customers’ enthusiastic response to our offerings has made us the leading publisher in this area.

Our organization is guided by the following principles:

Heinemann’s History

Heinemann is today the leading name in professional development books and resources for teachers.

Heinemann Publishing was established in the spring of 1978 on New Hampshire’s seacoast, as a U.S. subsidiary of Heinemann UK.

After its initial founding, Heinemann quickly became the national leader in the publishing of professional books for teachers of language arts K–12 and has impressive and growing lists in math and science. In 1987, Boynton/Cook, the leading publisher of professional books for English teachers at the middle and high school levels and for college English teachers, joined Heinemann.

Heinemann’s Professional Development division is designed to bring continuing education directly to teachers, giving them the tools they need to keep their classroom practice energized. Our On-Site offerings bring authors and consultants directly to schools and conferences, all customized to the specific needs of educators. If extensive professional development is preferred, our residency programs bring our educators to schools or districts for an extended period of time. Workshops and multiday institutes allow teachers to spend a focused day of professional learning with a Heinemann author, and depart with renewed energy and practical classroom tools. And our Online opportunities give educators quality instruction at a time that works best with their busy schedules.

The demanding practice of a busy classroom is a challenge, and in 2001 we established the firsthand imprint, under which we publish professional, practical curricular materials that are a key part of the teaching–learning dynamic. Now called Curricular Resources, these materials embrace the progressive philosophy that has served as our publishing beacon for more than twenty-five years and are one more manifestation of our mission to guide you toward successful, fulfilling teaching and learning.

While there are several companies carrying Heinemann in their names and using similar logos, the businesses are separate. Our particular focus is on bringing quality professional development to teachers. We are proud to carry the name Heinemann and to fulfill our mission to support teachers in their professional growth and in the important work they do to further the growth of children.
