Practical Teacher Training for Science Teachers (and Other Content Teachers)

Science teachers are busy people.  We have labs to run, labs to clean up, labs to grade, content lessons to plan and teach, and assessments to plan and grade.  Add on top of that: teachers need tools and processes that empower them to use their time efficiently and effectively to help their students as best as they can.  

Our collection of professional development courses provides teachers with practical tips, tools, and processes that they can take right away and use right away in their classroom.  

Our courses are designed to benefit all middle school and high school science teachers.

  • How long will my purchased course be available?

    These Summer 2022 course offerings will open mid June 2022 and close end of October 31, 2022. Purchasers will have access to course material to complete their courses at their own pace, until October 31, 2022.

  • Do I have access to my courses forever?

    No, you are purchasing access to your courses for this summer (through October 31) only. In order to keep costs of our Professional Development courses affordable for all teachers, we only offer them and keep them accessible for our current students from mid-June through October.

  • What other online support is available for course students?

    All course students will receive a link to a private Teacher Prep Room Facebook group where they can join and discuss ideas with other students in the courses.

  • Will Professional Development Credits be earned by completing each course?

    A course completion certificate with the number of course hours will be issued after the completion of each course. Your school or district may have further requirements for professional development. We think our practical teacher courses should definitely count, but it will be up to your district.

  • Can a site license be purchased for a school district?

    Please contact us at with the number of teachers you would like to use our courses with and we will get back to you with group pricing.

  • Are we affiliated with any edtech company?

    No! There are online tools, apps, and educational tech tools that we talk about in our courses, but we have not received any compensation from these companies, unless otherwise indicated inside the course. We only recommend tools we think are terrific! We do not own these tools or apps and we do not provide tech support beyond the scope of the course. If any links within the course are affiliate links (for example Amazon), the link will be noted as such.
