September is always a unique time for educators and brings up so many feelings... nervousness, excitement, energy, exhaustion, joy, anxiety over transitions... we’re here with you feeling all the feels, and hoping that you’re finding ways to take care of yourself too.  


If you’ve had a chance to recharge and are ready to jump back into school, we’re excited to invite you to the launch of ASPDP’s fall course catalog on Monday, September 13You’ll be able to count all of our courses for A+ or P credit toward your salary differential as well as CTLE hours toward maintaining your certification, as long as you register with ASPDP and with the partner organization by the deadline.  


You can use discount code BACK2SCHOOL21 to receive 25% off your ASPDP fee, valid through January 14, 2022. This discount code cannot be applied retroactively, so we recommend purchasing all of your courses in a single transaction.  


If you’re trying to build your understanding of social-emotional learning to support your students and yourself after a challenging year, try filtering our catalog for “Socioemotional Learning” to check out courses like "An Introduction to Social Emotional Learning" (Teach N Kids Learn; also has a Fast Track version), "Authenticity in the Classroom: Fundamentals of Authenticity Based SEL" (Children's Arts Guild), "Supporting Our Students Through Childhood Trauma, Grades K-12" (Teach N Kids Learn), "Teacher Rescue" (Long Island Institute for Educators; focuses on teacher self-care), and "Trauma-Informed Education" (Cowart Trauma-Informed Partnerships; also has Section 2 with alternate dates).  


Please join us in welcoming our newest partner, Teaching That Advances Justice! They’re offering two courses this fall: "Foundations of CR-SE" and "Cultivating Genius: Implementing the HILL Model".
