PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Denis continues to work closely with leading educators from independent and public schools across the country, fine tuning his live talks, classes and ‘Explorer-in-Residence’ workshops to fit their various needs. The success of his residencies hinge upon the enthusiasm and excitement of the faculty members. We offer varying levels of P.D. dependent on the elements of the chosen program. These may include phone calls and Skype sessions leading up to the explorer visit or on-site professional development sessions with select members of our team. Denis has enthused and inspired many educators at their schools and district headquarters or as the keynote speaker for Social Studies Conferences (NYCSS). He has held workshops for teachers at State Conferences including the NY State PTA as well as PBS’ The Celebration of Teaching and Learning with WNET’s (Channel Thirteen) two years in a row.

“I couldn’t pry those teachers off you. They were so clearly energized by your presentation, your journey, your story telling, your ideas.”
