Spark works with school districts to provide exactly what you need for your teachers to thrive. Whether that's a full-day workshop for a single department, a half-day teaching strategies seminar for a building, or a motivational convocation address for your entire district, Spark makes it easy for you.
Spark figures out all the logistics for you. After a district liaison works with Spark to determine needs, Spark retains an award-winning Teacher Consultant and arranges logistics. Spark picks up the zoom tab too. You just pick a date, topic and format, and relax. We've got you covered.
