The Startup Teacher Playbook:  Turn Your Ideas into Actions, Personalize Professional Development, and Create Innovative Learning Experiences for You and Your Students  (the first 20 registrants receive a FREE copy of the book)               

Darcy Bakkegard and Michelle Blanchet

ISBN:  978-1948212212

Teachers will participate in book study and utilize time to prepare lessons/unit plans.

Teachers know schools need more innovation, change-making, and relevance. But in the midst of overwhelming challenges, how can these needs turn into action?

Blanchet and Bakkegard grew tired of everyone telling teachers what to fix without sharing the “how,” so they created easy-to-use professional development tools and strategies to help teachers think like startup entrepreneurs.

The Startup Teacher Playbook helps teachers tackle challenges, turn their ideas into action, and tap into their potential to lead change in the classroom, school, and community.

This shows you how to evolve your teaching and learning to serve the changing needs of students, use professional learning and meeting time to break down challenges and create solutions, and cultivate your leadership capacity to take your ideas further than you ever imagined.

Teachers and school leaders will immediately use the author’s powerful and practical Educator Canvas, which will guide your personalized learning and collaboration with your colleagues.

The Startup Teacher Playbook is both professional growth guidebook and meeting workbook, combined into one impactful tool that you will want with you at all times.


Book studies cost $50 payable to North Dakota United to participate and AN ADDITIONAL $50 to UND to have your credit recorded onto your transcript.  In total, each book study is $100.00

Grades take approximately two weeks to appear on your transcript after the end of the book study.
