LP's Teacher Membership

Renew your passion for teaching with community and connection with like-minded educators.


What kind of leader do you want to be?

As a teacher, you want nothing more than for your students to learn, grow, and thrive. 

Teaching is challenging at times — but that’s what led you to the profession.

Maybe your days look like this:
  • You're doing everything you can but are still finding some kids to be disengaged.

  • You’re craving more connections beyond those at your school.

  • You want more professional development and networking opportunities but can't figure out how to make the time.

  • There are areas of your teaching you want to refine but don't have several hours to spend at workshops and doing professional reading.

  • You want fresh ideas and inspiration to give you and your students some variety — you don’t want to keep doing the same old thing year after year.

You were born to be a teacher — and you want to give yourself a boost.

There’s no better feeling than doing what you love while watching kids learning and thriving.

How does this sound instead?

  • You’re energized because you’re constantly discovering new ways to engage your students and yourself in literacy work.
  • You feel supported inside a helpful community with other workshop teachers.
  • You have a safe space to get answers to all your workshop teaching questions from a big-hearted community and experts in the field.
  • You’re inspired by seeing your colleagues' success, and even better, you have a group where you can celebrate your wins.
  • You know that you’re building your teaching and leadership skills with top-notch professional development

Here’s why the LP Teacher’s Membership is different from anything else you’ve tried:

Personalized support such as meeting to plan or even coaching

A space to share ideas and have engaging discussions

On-demand lessons for you to watch anywhere — where it’s most convenient for you

Learn about topics that you’re most passionate about — best practices for workshop, setting up book clubs, interactive read alouds, spelling, grammar, and even planning for the coming school year

We created the LP Teacher’s Membership to support educators everywhere.


LP's Teacher Membership is a month-to-month, virtual community where you’ll get on-demand professional development about virtual learning with the support of the LP team. 

"Learning about Writing Workshop and having to write the curriculum for my grade level this summer would have been impossible without the LP Teacher Membership.

The monthly videos are a great way to learn aspects of Reading and Writing Workshop. I often watched a video while I was writing parts of the curriculum to ensure I was including best practices and strategies for my grade level. I also learned more successful strategies for how to carry out book clubs in the classroom to continue expanding on my knowledge.

I can honestly say that it feels like I have personal mentors through my Literacy Partners Membership."

- Leana Malinowsky

Look at what you get every month:

  • Live office hours where you can bring your questions and challenges and get immediate answers from experts

  • A new video exploring a topic more deeply — paired with all the guides, resources, and tools you need
  • Access to the LP team — it’s like having a literacy coach in your back pocket helping you with your toughest situations

  • A private Facebook community to get answers to your questions and where you can learn from the successes and challenges of other teachers just like you
Even if you’ve read all the books and attended online workshops, this monthly membership will support you in feeling fulfilled in your teaching again. 

Re-define yourself as an educator.

Who it’s for:

Educators based anywhere in the world using balanced literacy, including a reading and writing workshop approach at your school or in your district.

Finally, you’ll feel more confident re-engaging students during this challenging time.
