Professional Learning

KLRN offers free professional development opportunities for teachers in San Antonio. We know educators need access to high-quality training and resource materials to be empowered and prepared.

Thanks to Firstmark Credit Union for their support of KLRN teacher resources.


The Healthy Kids Project

At KLRN, we believe that an adult who understands the importance of making healthy life choices raises young children who are healthy.

KLRN presents a workshop for early childhood teachers as we examine components of nutritious snacks and meals, the benefits of physical activity, and healthy caregiving practices. Attendees earn four free training hours. To learn more, reach out to Mary at (210) 208-8405 or email training@klrn.org.

KLRN PBS KIDS EdCamp

KLRN, with national partners PBS and Edcamp, will create opportunities for early-childhood teachers to engage in peer-to-peer learning.

We will use Edcamp’s “unconference” professional development model, in which teachers lead their own learning experiences. Through this innovative effort, we will bring together teachers in the local San Antonio community to elevate their voices and empower them professionally.

PBS Edcamps are free to attendees, ensuring that all local educators have access to them. To learn more, email: training@klrn.org or call (210) 208-8444.
