What kind of leader do you want to be next year?

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

Teaching is challenging in regular times — add in hybrid instruction, remote learning, closures, and constantly changing schedules and it’s all new levels of frustrating. 

Does this sound like what’s going on in your classroom?
  • Your students are disengaging more and more and you’re trying to do everything you can to support them.

  • You’re feeling more isolated than ever. 

  • You need more support, and you’re not getting it — worse, you feel like you’re missing out on all the professional development opportunities and networking you used to take part in.

  • You wish that you could hold the kids’ attention, but they’re feeling it too — they’re doing the bare minimum just trying to get by.

  • Kids, parents, your colleagues, everyone is feeling the crushing pressure to do what’s best for the kids. 

What if you could re-energize your passion for teaching and re-engage your students?

Imagine, looking at your student’s faces and seeing excitement again. 

How does this sound instead?

  • You’re energized because you re-discovered 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 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

This is why we created the LP Teacher’s Membership.


The LP Teacher’s 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

Here’s what you get each month:

  • Office hours where you can bring any questions and challenges and get immediate answers

  • 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 trickiest 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. 

And when you do transition back into the physical classroom, you’ll get all the support you need — we’re right there with you.
