Everything is changing so quickly in education. No matter how dedicated and talented a staff and administration may be, keeping up is challenging and costly. Schools cannot hire full-time Instructional Coaches, Literacy Coaches, Technology Integrators, Arts/Enrichment Facilitators, or Curriculum Coordinators.
I am an energetic, creative educator who was a classroom teacher until 2014 and now an independent instructional coach and consultant. In this role, I have the honor of mixing and matching my skill sets and worlds of Educational Technology Integration, Arts Integration, and progressive literacy instruction. I am a Google for Education Certified Trainer, Heinemann Professional Development online PD consultant, and UNH Learning through Teaching adjunct.
Expand your view of what is possible for your students, teachers and school. Quality professional development is key to keeping teachers in the classroom, working their magic. Educators thrive in environments where professional learning is embedded within their present work with students and with each other as teams. I created ExpandED to give schools a contact with a rich, varied skill set- someone passionate about differentiated, inspiring professional development. Explore the menu above to see what might fit with your school’s needs. I look forward to collaborating with you.
