Are you planning your professional development goals? Would you like to continue to advance your skills as an educator, without having to pay the high costs of conference fees or take the time necessary to attend seminars? Even finding time to schedule webinars can be challenging as well.

As an educator you gain significant experience on the job just by working with students.

It is of benefit for you and your students.

Dr. Johnson has several resources available to help you meet your professional development goals, which can be taken with you and read whenever you have a few minutes available. There are also resources you can download and save to your computer or mobile device for easy access.
