Paige & Paxton Professional Development
Paige & Paxton is the gold standard in elementary STEM professional development, offering the most comprehensive teacher training series in the country.
The series offers a safe and supportive environment for elementary teachers to increase their foundational knowledge of STEM subjects, learn best practices in elementary STEM education and to learn to apply Paige & Paxton methodology to drive STEM awareness, interest, and knowledge in their classrooms.
Teachers are the most important part of the STEM equation
Any instructional solution that doesn’t take into account the skills, experience, and background of teachers is inherently deficient.
The vast majority of elementary teachers do not have a STEM degree or STEM training. Elementary education majors also have the highest math and science anxiety of any other undergraduate major. At the same time, opportunities for elementary teachers to enhance their knowledge in the area of elementary STEM are scarce. This is the single biggest barrier to implementing quality STEM education in communities throughout the country.
Paige & Paxton addresses this obstacle because it provides teachers with the resources and tools to be successful in the classroom through our methodology, curriculum design, and the most comprehensive teacher training, professional development and support system in the field.
“As someone who has led many STEM PD sessions for teachers, this is the kind of mindset and pedagogy that I wish all teachers had. That is what impressed me the most about Paige & Paxton when I started to learn more about the company, its curriculum, and approach.”
