Heinemann's Philosophy and Company Mission Statement

Heinemann is a publisher of professional resources and a provider of educational services for teachers, kindergarten through college. We strive to give voice to those who share our respect for the professionalism and compassion of teachers and who support teachers' efforts to help children become literate, empathetic, knowledgeable citizens. Our authors are exemplary educators eager to support the practice of other teachers through books, videos, workshops, online courses, and most recently through explicit teaching materials. Our commitment to our work and customers' enthusiastic response to our offerings has made us the leading publisher in this area. Our passion for publishing works by professionals for professionals also informs our trade publishing, which includes books for theatre professionals, general books on education, and quality works of world literature.

Heinemann's History

Heinemann, a division of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, is today the leading name in professional development books and resources for teachers.

After its initial founding, Heinemann quickly became the national leader in the publishing of professional books for teachers of language arts K-12, and has impressive and growing lists in math, science, social studies, and art education. In 1987, Boynton/Cook, the leading publisher of professional books for English teachers at the middle and high school levels and for college English teachers, joined Heinemann. The company also has an active and highly-respected presence in several niche markets, most notably in theatre and arts, and Third World writing, with literature lists in the Caribbean, Asia, Middle East, and Africa. Heinemann's authors are leaders in their fields. Many are award-winners for their work in education and are frequent speakers and keynoters at major national conferences.

Besides its book and video lines, Heinemann also has a professional development division, which presents its authors and educational experts at workshops and seminars. It maintains a speakers' bureau that represents many of its well-known authors. Heinemann Professional Development also includes Seminars where Heinemann Consultants deliver the content of Heinemann's expert authors in schools and districts around the country.

While there are several companies carrying Heinemann in their names and using similar logos, the businesses are separate. Our particular focus is on bringing quality professional development to teachers. We are proud to carry the name Heinemann and to fulfill our mission to support teachers in their professional growth and in the important work they do to further the growth of children.
