Professional Learning

Teacher Leader in Residence

At Open Up Resources, we understand that not all professional learning needs are one-size-fits all and oftentimes these needs do not fit into a traditional professional development model. The Teacher Leader in Residence will meet your teachers where they are in their implementation journey of Open Up Resources 6–8 Math throughout customized and continuous support.
