For over 30 years, Staff Development for Educators (SDE) has served the professional development needs of educators from across the country and around the world. As America’s leading in-service workshop and conference provider, SDE enriches the lives of hundreds of thousands of educators each year by offering the most up-to-date, cutting-edge topics, classroom resources, and the largest network of nationally acclaimed presenters available anywhere.
