Professional Development Services

The art of teaching is a constantly evolving, deepening practice, and practitioners benefit greatly from professional development opportunities including one-on-one coaching, staff-wide trainings, and consultations. I offer a wide variety of services, all of which I tailor to fit the individual needs of each teacher, school, and district. This allows for differentiation, critical thinking, self-directed learning, and reflects a transformative approach to education. My professional development services for teachers reflects the best of what we know about effective teaching and learning environments, just as you strive for in your classrooms and schools.
