Why We Do It (continued)

We created the Making Sense Professional Development courses because we believe in the importance of effective and innovative math instruction. The positive impact felt by students who are taught by highly-effective and capable teachers with strong content and pedagogy drives our course writing. We believe teachers are critically important in a child's education. Through our Making Sense Professional Development courses and instructional coaching, we strive to empower teachers and principals to become the most impactful educators and classroom leaders that they can be.
