About Teachers Talk ED

How It Began

Teachers Talk ED was founded in 2019 by Mark Gonzales and Karla Valencia. Since then they have built a team of experienced professionals to facilitate high quality professional development among teachers across the U.S. Teachers Talk ED is at the leading edge for professional development as we provide teachers with a virtual learning community which allows them to develop the tools and abilities to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Follow through is essential when it comes to educators advancing in their field and applying knowledge gained from conferences or seminars.

Teachers Talk ED understands this dire need and has therefore built the company around the idea of working with teachers throughout the entire school year. With Teachers Talk ED Educators will get the personalized instruction necessary to make a noticeable academic impact with their students and on their teaching.
