Professional Development with ThinkCERCA

Trainings and support provided for educators, by educators


ThinkCERCA’s professional development offerings help educators implement personalized literacy and blended learning programs more effectively in the classroom. We provide partner districts and schools with the opportunity to purchase customized PD packages that include in-person support, one-on-one coaching, virtual resources, and more.


PD for Teachers and Administrators

Virtual Resources

All schools using ThinkCERCA have access to a robust catalogue of virtual training and resources to support implementation of ThinkCERCA. Many of these resources are self-serve, such as our on-demand webinars, allowing educators to access resources and instructional tools on their own timeline.


ThinkCERCA’s onboarding is led by a member of the School Success team, in hands-on, interactive sessions. Beyond onboarding, schools have the opportunity to add on additional professional development tailored to their needs as they continue implementation of ThinkCERCA.

Customized Professional Learning

ThinkCERCA is your partner in identifying needs and facilitating various professional learning experiences in your school. Whether you are updating your curriculum maps, implementing a new technology schedule, or overhauling your assessment and data processes, our team can support your work.

"The professional development helped us get teachers together from different schools in our area and collaborate on common goals. Kavita and Jeff aligned to our district initiatives and brought forth conversations around best practices, student engagement, center-based learning, and overall instructional practices."

– Nicole Lambson, Executive Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment for Farmington Municipal Schools
