How This Works… A Partnership.

I believe that professional development is built and delivered responsively, based on the real and relevant needs of the teachers attending. I believe it is engaging, forward thinking, inspiring and relevant. Adult learners need to “chunk and chew” on information, they need to reflect, respond, plan and prioritize. This occurs when teachers can invest in professional development thoughtfully over time, within a solid, trust worthy relationship where all can feel vulnerable, valued and celebrated. After all, we are the students of our students… they deserve the very best we have to offer.

“I’ve been paying attention and listening to educators for many years… they are overwhelmed. I take a hands on role with my clients to curate manageable systems of best practice based upon the needs of their students in their classrooms and the needs of their teachers. When this falls into place we  alleviate the stress and allow the love of literacy to set the tone. The outcome is a sustainable, cohesive tapestry of growth in both our readers and our teachers… and that’s a win/win!”
