Toby J. Karten, with TAMKA Education, has launched embedded online professional development (PD), Strategies2ReachEach, to assist teachers of students who require additional supports to learn.

Virtual formats and platforms are custom designed for PK through Grade 12 general and special education teachers, co-teachers, multidisciplinary teams, whole staff, and families through a combination of faculty and small group webinars, coaching sessions, video chats, and teleconferencing. As with Toby’s face-to-face PD, the online PD connects to teacher and student realities with resources and practical strategies.
