Gravity Goldberg

March 4, 2020


What your students need is you. Your fullest, most authentic self. 

Throughout her workshop, Gravity Goldberg will remind you why you became a teacher and will coach you to bring your unique gifts and talents into the classroom. The difference between a so-so lesson and one that leaves a lasting impact on students has everything to do with how confident and connected you feel to yourself and your students. Through illuminating stories, reflection questions, short videos of advice from her and other educators, Gravity will exercise her gifts for developing teacher agency as she coaches you to become the biggest, boldest, and most powerful version of your teacher self.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to make five powerful practices lifelong habits
  • Receive expert coaching on fulfilling their teacher potential
  • Find more balance in their teaching and personal life
  • Get a pep talk for saying no to what doesn’t help students and yes to what you know does
  • Grow and deepen their practice without losing themselves in the process


  • Grades K-8 teachers (classroom, special education, EL, and support specialists)
  • Reading Specialists
  • Literacy Coaches
  • Instructional Coaches
  • Principals
