With over 15 years of experience delivering engaging workshops, we bring a new voice to your classroom and allow you to observe your class in action. Our workshops will take away the hassle of planning. Whether we’re teaching new topics, or reinforcing a previous lesson, we can support you and your class.

We all know there’s pressure to cover more than ever in the classroom. As educators, we have to balance an expanding curriculum, alongside ensuring children continue to develop their confidence and love of learning. Our free workshops do just that. We give children the space to unlock their imaginations, and discover the magic of words and numbers. It’s about delivering content that engages everyone, from the passionate to the reluctant.

Whether your school would like extra focus on math or language arts, for the gifted and talented or for those that are struggling, we have something to suit the needs of your school.

How do our members and teachers feel?

The Young Writers Award workshops that I have held have been a great success. The team at Explore Horizons does a great job motivating the students and getting them excited about writing. The workshop helps the students with brainstorming ideas for their topic as well as giving direction for the contest. I have had students who were reluctant writers in the classroom, blossom and write great stories. I even had one child who took it a step farther and started researching how to publish an eBook. She had half of her book written by the end of the school year.  The workshops are not a replacement for any writing models currently being used by the district, they are a an enrichment to encourage creative thinking.

Glenna Harris, GATE Interventionist, Birdville ISD

Explore Horizons has been an extremely beneficial writing experience for our Gifted & Talented program in Richardson ISD. I have been teaching GT for 13 years, and prior to that was a professional writer and journalism major. The GT students have loved working with Matt and his staff. Matt and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and create a fun and learning atmosphere. I would highly recommend Explore Horizons for your students if you are an educator or your children, if you are a parent. Very impressive!!!
