Passion-Based Teaching Academy

  Enroll in Course


Is there an idea or strategy that you've always wanted to try in your classroom? Do you need to find something that will spark your joy for teaching again? Would you like to experience Genius Hour or passion-based learning from the learner's perspective?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, this course is for you! A passion project can help you find yourself again and provide a roadmap for that new idea or strategy that you've been wanting to implement.

Passion-Based Teaching Academy is a new approach to professional learning with a focus on personalization and community. Throughout the course, we will utilize the 6 Ps of Genius Hour to work on our own passion projects as we develop innovative ideas to engage and empower today's learners.

Trust me, this is going to be fun!

I believe that educators deserve an opportunity to pursue their own passions. Now, more than ever before, we need to take ownership of our learning and make the commitment to take risks and try new things to engage and empower today's learners.

This is an opportunity to intentionally learn a new idea, strategy, or tool that will help you find your passion for teaching again and your learners find their passion for learning.
