Working with Teachers

ecet2 talkingI take my time working with teachers seriously because their time is valuable and their professional development should be relevant, personalized, and meaningful. Whether workshops are breakout, half-day, full-day, or multi-day sessions, I will work closely with you to ensure that the design meets all needs. My workshops are interactive, engaging, and productive–each attendee leaves with a vision of how to be the best version of themselves in the classroom. I believe that teachers should be honored, their experiences and realities should be respected, and the work they do alongside me should be empowering and celebratory.

Sample workshop topics:

  • Authentic writing in the classroom
  • Making research instruction manageable
  • Literacy across the curriculum
  • Implementing the Common Core in real ways
  • Reading Workshop at the high school level
  • Infusing voice in expository writing
  • Building a schoolwide literacy culture
  • Empowering students who live in poverty through literacy
  • Using primary documents to drive inquiry and research
