MoPOP’s Teacher Professional Development occurs throughout the school year and features workshops, tours, curriculum development, and networking opportunities.

Our goal is to create experiences in which teachers engage with pop culture and each other; where we provide useful teaching tools that are interactive, fun, equitable for all learners, and easy to use.
