Teachers deserve personalized professional development tailored to their needs. With over ten years of facilitation experience in K-12 education, higher education student leadership, and the private sector, I am passionate about delivering active PD that gives teachers immediately implementable takeaways to support student learning, growth, and autonomy. While a sampling of workshop topics is listed below, workshops are tailored to best support YOUR teachers and students.
Agile Certified Educator
Through true project-based learning, students build product backlogs, complete sprints, hold stand-up meetings, retrospectives, and more to bring learning to life and give them skills that mirror those used in start-ups and software development worldwide. Led by a Certified ScrumMaster, participants will learn how to implement agile in their classrooms and schools to effectively prepare students for the 21st century careers they’re destined to enter. Participants will leave with lesson plans and resources for implementation in the classroom and within a school staff setting.
21st Century Classroom Leadership
In this program, participants will learn tangible tools and strategies to help transform their classrooms into places where students do work that matters to THEM right now. Through classroom management methods that empower student coaching and collaboration, assessment tools that amplify and inspire creativity, tips for building student tenacity, and strategies to manage 100+ unique projects all at once without losing your mind, educators will leave this session ready to transform their classroom from student-centered to student-led.
Reach all Learners: Let’s Differentiate!
Differentiation doesn’t mean sacrificing mastery, and it doesn’t have to consume all of your extra time. Done right, differentiation of content, process, and product allow every learner to work toward mastery of the standards, while freeing up time for the educator in the room to do what they do best: teach. In this session, participants will explore methods to differentiate any lesson, leaving with tools to immediately change their classroom environment into one where every student has the ability to access rigorous content.
