PROFESSIONAL LEARNING SUPPORT FOR
Helping You Build
New Teacher Capacity
District and school leaders often are stretched thin when it comes to sustaining the complex work of supporting educators' instructional growth. Teacher preparation programs increasingly seek support for the school-based educators who guide their student teachers. I can help design embedded learning and facilitate professional learning communities for cooperating teachers of preservice teachers or for teachers in their induction years.

Thoughtful, strategic needs analyses are an important component of building a plan to support your stakeholders or meet client needs. I can help you gain a deeper understanding of audiences and partners by collaborating with you to design and facilitate interviews or focus groups, or I can analyze and summarize existing qualitative data.
Helping You Cross
the Finish Line
