Educational Training Specialists, LLC Announces Chapman University Credit
for All Continuing Education Courses
Teacher training company helps teachers enhance their teaching skills while receiving valuable
recertification hours with interactive, research-based teacher workshops.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) September 7, 2009 -- Educational Training Specialists, LLC has announced that it has
received approval from Chapman University to offer optional teacher continuing education college credits for all
of the company's teacher professional development offerings. Teachers can earn one to three credits per course,
depending upon which workshop they have attended.
"Teachers should have the opportunity to choose whether they would like to receive continuing graduate credits
for attending our workshops," says Anne Swigard, President of Educational Training Specialists. "There seem to
be few options for teachers to receive continuing graduate education courses without going to a traditional college
or university. We offer training and practicum options that are immediately applicable in the classroom,
strategies-packed, and void of tests and unnecessary research papers."
Originally specializing in high-quality staff development for teachers of English Learners, Swigard says the
company began planning to offer additional topics when her workshop trainees repeatedly asked her what else
Educational Training Specialists had to offer. After doing a 3000-person survey, a core of topics emerged that
seemed to have the widest appeal. The company now offers a number of training opportunities that can be held in
a district or school, and that feature a wide array of topics. These include teacher workshops on:
• Effectively working with English Language Learners
• Teaching autistic, ADD and ADHD students in the regular education classroom
• Maintaining creativity while raising student achievement
• Classroom management
• Gifted strategies for regular education students
• Strategic teaching
