StarrMatica’s “bite sized” science professional learning and generous supplementary resources impact students immediately.

Our in-person and virtual professional learning focuses on high-impact teaching strategies guaranteed to improve student achievement.

As former classroom educators we understand your time crunch. That’s why our unique sessions are laser focused on modeling effective strategies and providing engaging resources that you can use the very next day.

Do you have a day, a half-day, or even just an hour for professional learning?

We can help you improve a specific teaching skill like questioning or learn how to encourage your students to “think like scientists” throughout your daily schedule. 

Is improving science teaching your professional learning focus this year? 

We can work with you to design a year-long science professional development curriculum that focuses on pedagogy, fits your schedule, and meets your unique needs.


Limited Time? We can help.

“The presentation was so well prepared, humorous, and informative. What fun! Thank you for opening the door to possibilities. This is vital information. I left your session with new ideas ready to implement with students!”

“My professional learning experience with the StarrMatica Virtual Coaching platform has been incredible. I’ve never participated in professional learning regarding the Next Generation Science Standards that focuses so intently on pedagogy and truly breaking down the performance expectations and dimensions of scientific learning that are so critical to student and teacher success. I gained access to immediate strategies that will improve the rigor of my 5E lesson planning and improve the academic discourse taking place between my students in our Science Lab.

The self-guided approach to professional development was also a breath of fresh air for this teacher who is always pressed for time! StarrMatica is a excellent resource that will provide teachers with deeper understanding of the NGSS standards as well as engage teachers in high yield teaching strategies that will bring about student success in a multitude of avenues.”

“This session was AMAZING!! The crosscutting science definitions & examples of read alouds were so informative. The downloadable lists were so generous. Thank you so much for sharing your time and knowledge. I am referring your resource sites to all my
science colleagues!”

“The StarrMatica Virtual Science Coach has helped me to approach my teaching of the science standards differently. By approaching the standards and looking at how questioning can enhance your student learning by going deeper has made more conversations during our lessons. I really liked being able to print and laminate the Quick Reference Cards that accompanied the 5E’s and the Crosscutting Concepts. I feel that this program is a valuable tool that school districts can use to enhance faculty understanding of the NGSS.”

Julie Miner, Fifth Grade Teacher, Illinois
