Custom Professional Development

PD that Responds to Need and Transforms Practice

Heinemann knows that schools, the teachers and administrators that make them up, are as different as the students and communities they serve. That's why virtually every professional development partnership Heinemann has with schools and districts across the country, and around the world, is unique.

When you choose Heinemann as your PD partner, our team, authors, and consultants collaborate with you in planning and implementing a custom-designed and delivered plan. You benefit from a combination of superior resources—professional books, classroom materials, DVDs, and consulting—to manifest the vision you have for transforming your classroom instruction.

Think of the services described throughout the Heinemann PD website as building blocks, or even a springboard, and call us to dream your PD plans out loud. Here's what you can expect when you contact us:

How Custom Plans Start
  1. The Heinemann PD team first listens to understand your broader goals with an aim to design a targeted PD approach to meet your immediate and long-term needs.
  2. We evaluate your needs and tap into the knowledge and experience of expert authors and author-trained consultants to develop a plan for your review.
  3. Our plan includes recommendations for professional development that help to meet standards and build teachers' and administrators' capacity over time, using a combination of professional print and DVD resources, as well as face-to-face and online consulting support.
