Professional Development

GF Educators takes great pride in the amount of research we partake with regards to educational theory and the TEKS.  In each workshop, we provide in-depth analysis of the TEKS, how to implement them in the classroom, and how to incorporate the latest in brain research to ensure engagement in the classroom.

Professional development focused on the teks

GF Educators produces more than just test preparation material many of the other companies produce.  We have products which can be used during the entire teaching cycle from planning, through instruction, and assessment.  The expertise we garner by focusing only on the Texas standards (TEKS) provides a unique perspective to our products.  Companies which produce products for many different states and/or the common core curriculum merely adapt those materials to the TEKS.  GF Educators produces all workshops specifically for the TEKS.
