Our Team

Our team of professionals are dedicated to partnering with Southwest Missouri school districts and their team of administrators and educators.

Services and Programs

Our consultants work very hard to establish relevant and dynamic training and consulting for the 94 school districts and hundreds of educators in the southwest Missouri region.

Online PD Sessions

Our virtual sessions are live, interactive, timely, and allow participants to connect without leaving their school.

Calendar of Workshops

Our professional learning calendar allows participants to browse and search workshops, register, see workshop details and more.

In an effort to continue to meet the professional development needs of our school districts and also reduce the risk of spreading the COVID‑19 virus, all Agency for Teaching, Leading, and Learning (ATLL) consultants will be providing interactive, online workshops as well as providing some face to face training and support.

All face to face interaction, whether at a school site or in a workshop hosted at the ATLL, will include safety measures. Limiting participants, social distancing and wearing masks will be implemented. For more information about safety measures, please contact the ATLL.

Consultants will continue to be available upon request for virtual meetings and sessions to assist schools. Check our calendar of events, and watch for messages concerning what we have to offer.

The ATLL is your partner in learning and we are here to help.
