Usually we train teachers on the Rubin “Emerge” curriculum (email/phone etiquette) through Zoom. The goal is to provide high-quality materials for college and career readiness.
But on Friday, August 19th we had the opportunity to lead a career and technical education (CTE) group in person.
Three members of the Rubin team (Founder Danny Rubin and Implementation Specialists Mac Walsh and Alexis Kruemcke) drove from Va Beach, our headquarters, to Raleigh, the largest school system in North Carolina (also know as Wake County), to work with the career development coordinators in each of the city’s high schools.
During the three-hour training, we guided the group through Rubin resources, which integrate to Canvas for single sign-on, and had everyone develop a lesson plan for implementation at the start of the year. We also sent people back to their classrooms with motivational posters.
“The Rubin training was one of the best professional development sessions I have ever been a part of,” said Wake County Career Development Coordinator Carla Thomas. “I can’t wait to use it personally, as well as in the classroom.”
On that note, let the new year begin!
All smiles after our three-hour, in-person training!

At Rubin, we believe when you write well, you open doors. This teacher’s students will soon understand that lesson.
We preach the value of showing people you care through active listening and follow-up questions.
Another Rubin ambassador!
