There’s no shortage of professional development classes for teachers. A quick Google search yields more than 300 million results. Even if only 10% of those hits lead to reputable courses, you must still wade through 30 million choices. Yikes! No one has the time for that, let alone busy educators.
If you’re wondering how you can possibly narrow down the options, Happy Teacher is here to help. We offer dozens of classes that focus on everything from supporting students with IEPs to using learning management systems.
All the online classes at Happy Teacher start on the first day of the month and end on the last day of the month. Since they are self-paced, you can join as late as the 21st. More than 99% of students who enroll complete all their assignments before the final deadline. However, if an emergency arises and you cannot finish the class in the allotted time frame, you may transfer your enrollment to another month for just $15.
Happy Teacher classes are approved for license renewal in the following states:
The successful completion of these courses can also assist with pay scale advancement in many school districts. Districts typically require graduate-level transcripts from an accredited university to move teachers up the pay scale. Every Happy Teacher class offers optional credits through Adams State University (ASU).
Better retirement benefits are often a by-product of teacher salary advancement. Taking courses can possibly enhance your resume and may give you more negotiating power in future job interviews. What’s more, the actual cost of the classes may be deductible in certain scenarios.
Teachers who prioritize continuing education are able to create more comprehensive curriculum for their students. This is especially true when they’re committed to mastering the latest technologies so they can apply them in the classroom. Whether you’re interested in using Google Hyperdocs or creating a teacher website, we’ve got a class for you.
Since happy teachers make for happy students, we’ve got all kinds of courses on health and wellness. From cultivating kindness to managing stress, our classes aim to help teachers become more well-rounded, so they can go on to help their students thrive.
