Customize a Professional Development Plan for Your School

FariaPD works with educational leaders around the world to develop a curriculum-first professional development plan that is customized to solve your school’s core challenges. We build PD that is informative and interactive, ensuring tangible outcomes for all participants. Our offerings span from developing strategic plans with administrators to writing high-quality curriculum with teachers. We’re also experienced in supporting instructional coaches through providing them with the tools necessary to meet their school-wide goals.

We offer three main categories of PD: School Leadership & Process, Curriculum Development, and Instructional Strategies. Our team will travel to your school or district for customized onsite PD, or you can choose a series of sessions to participate in with us online. We believe that professional development is not a one-time initiative, but an ongoing process. That’s why we offer PD tracks with several sessions that can be tailored to your school-wide objectives. Mix and match from the following tracks to start creating a professional development plan for your school.

School Leadership & Process

Quality curriculum and instruction start with school leadership. Design a seamless process with an articulated vision, in-depth planning, and essential resources to support and engage educators and maintain momentum. Sample sessions include:

  • Design a Curriculum Process
  • Curriculum Review
  • Support your School Accreditation Process

Curriculum Development

Bring your curriculum to life with effective instructional techniques and approaches to learning to motivate and engage students while fostering academic growth. Sample sessions include:

  • Curriculum Writing
  • Develop Standards-Based Curriculum
  • Develop a Concept-Based Curriculum

Instructional Strategies

Curriculum is the foundation for teaching and learning. Guide teachers as they create a living and authentic curriculum that elevates and aligns instruction to enhance student learning. Sample sessions include:

  • Strategies to Engage Students with NGSS or Differentiated Instruction
  • Integrating Social-Emotional Learning Standards and Competencies into Curriculum
  • Move from Instructor to Facilitator in the Classroom

    We recognize that facilitating professional development for schools and districts also means considering the location and delivery method best suited to meet their learning goals. We offer the following formats:

    Onsite Workshops

    Our Professional Development Specialist will help you create an agenda that is tailored to meet the unique learning goals of your school. We can work with different groups of people to accomplish their goals: leadership teams, curriculum writers in small groups, or larger all-staff sessions. Consider combining an onsite day with online sessions for maximum impact!
