Hire Me for a Speaking Engagement or to Lead a Professional Development Clinic

Let’s Make Something Awesome Together

Who really wants to sit through PowerPoint presentations?

Teachers understand ongoing training is critical to develop the knowledge and skills they need to address students’ learning challenges, but all too often the programs they attend are boring, not useful, and otherwise don’t engage them.

Sometimes you sit for a long time being told things you already know and do.

Or, presentations are vague, so you are not sure how to apply the lessons to your classroom.

Sometimes there are actually many good ideas, but, opportunities for improvement are lost because you don’t get to sit with your team and plan how to implement them in your own curriculum.

But it doesn’t have to be this way!

Schools need engaging presenters. And, professional development should ideally involve hands on participation and interaction between colleagues. Ultimately, workshops should be succinct and to-the-point—not lasting hours. Finally, time should be set aside for planning how to take the ideas and put them to work.

Wouldn’t that be something?!

I know what works for teachers. Get the most from a professional development clinic by booking me to speak at your school about literature and games in the math curriculum.

It won’t be boring like other professional development programs you’ve done!
I know from sitting through many what works and what doesn’t and I will be engaging and bring a lot of energy to ensure the training will have a lasting effect.

It will be interactive and fun.
Colleagues will work together on activities that bring the training to focus.

I can craft a custom program to cater to your needs.
I can accommodate different formats, working with small groups or large groups and can cover different topics.

To learn more or inquire about creating a program catered to your school’s faculty, reach out.
Let’s discuss it!

Administrators should value keeping parents and teachers up-to-date on new research on how children learn, new curriculum resources, and more. And, parents and teachers alike should demand and advocate for high-quality professional development that results in better teaching and higher student performance.

Everyone involved can play a role in bringing new ideas to their school.

If you would like to see if I could visit your school and connect with its community, let me know!

"This site's list of resources has helped me find books, games, toys, and activities to share with students. I love recommending it to parents so they can try new ways to engage their kids with math outside of school."
