IMPRESS TITLES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

IMPress, a subsidiary publishing company of Dave Burgess Consulting, Inc., brings educators a line of professional development (PD) titles to help lead, innovate, empower, and unleash potential. Most titles closely connect to the popular book, The Innovator’s Mindset, published by Dave Burgess. IMPress offers readers timeless manifestos written by innovative educators who truly push education forward in a positive way.
 
These PD titles are digitally available on Gale’s eBook platform. With Gale eBooks: Professional Learning, administrators can support the 4 Pillars of Effective PD and provide continuing professional development that’s personalized, job embedded, tied to evaluations, and sustainable.
