Abstract: This paper examines a professional development model that centers teachers and their families and was intended to deepen teachers’ practices and engagement with making. This program was initiated by teachers who wanted to participate in professional development but faced constraints by the need for childcare. This program highlights what is possible when teachers are positioned to learn alongside their family members and are encouraged to draw on multiple roles and identities. A professional development program that invites and honors the multiple roles of teachers can expand existing best practices and offer a creative and meaningful response to the reality of remote learning and teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.
