Information about what I currently offer for Staff Development.
Staff Development is meant to enhance teaching practice and ultimately have a positive impact on student achievement. The best scenarios are sustained models that allow for teachers to experience new tools, resources, ideas, etc., and then have an opportunity to develop them over the course of time with an emphasis on reflection and cycles of transformation. I work with schools and districts around their specific needs, developing something new, or differentiating topics already in my areas of expertise.
Much of the work I do is with the alignment of curriculum and the immersion in 21st Century skills, including technology, to transform the curriculum of yesterday into the curriculum of tomorrow. Currently, I am doing quite a bit of work with schools and districts around transition plans for implementing the Common Core Standards, upgrading curriculum within multiple lenses including new standards and technology, and creating collaborative cultures.
