WRITING
AND EDITING
---------

Helping You Communicate Accurately, Fluidly, Clearly and Concisely

My writing and editing services span industries and topics. I can start from scratch or meet you somewhere in the middle to hone and polish.

Ghost writing, web content, blog posts, professional bios, articles, case studies, reports, education-related literature reviews, and policy briefs are among my specialties.

I've also contributed to federal and other large-scale grant proposals.

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING SUPPORT FOR

NEW EDUCATORS
---------

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.

Helping You Root Your Work in Research and Best Practices

Whether it's a research synthesis and recommendations about a particular problem of practice, school partnership cultivation for your education-focused nonprofit, or content advisement and development of your education product, I can draw on my deep working knowledge of Chicago and area schools and districts; teachers and teaching; education policy and practice implementation; and K12 education research to help support your work.

Helping to Illuminate the Needs of Your Clients, Audiences or Constituents

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

Roughly 80 percent of doctoral students do not finish. I know firsthand how tough it can be. It took me 11 years to complete my program, and halfway through I became a mother. I almost gave up many times but am so glad I didn't. I would be honored to help you push through to the end.
