Professional Development for Teachers

Educator Professional Development

HealthWorks! offers professional development for school teachers and staff! 

Teaching, Review, and Assessment: Game On! – Wednesday June 19, 9 AM-3PM

Learning is a serious matter…or is it? Here at HealthWorks! we like to make it silly too! Teachers will explore how to teach new content, review previously taught skills, and assess formatively through game-based classroom experiences. Great for teachers of all grade levels, because here at HealthWorks! we’ve learned that kids of all ages love to play!

Classroom Management – The Whappy Approach! – Wednesday July 17, 9 AM-3PM

We all know that kids learn – and behave – best when Joy is injected into the classroom!  Teachers will learn about the HealthWorks! brand of fun, what we call Whappy, and how implementing it in the classroom in different ways can contribute to a joyful, well-managed, and attentive classroom experience! 

CUE Credits – 0.5 Credits

At the culmination of the workshop, participants will receive a form to complete and send in to the North MS Education Consortium with $15 cash, check, or debit/credit card.
